Gayle Sassoon, Survivor of Fire, Leaves Hospital

Gayle Sassoon, the mother of seven children who perished in their Brooklyn home last March, left the hospital on June 26.

Gabriel, her husband, told Kol Barama radio during an interview last Sunday that his wife will continue her recovery at his mother’s home. Tzipporah, 15, the couple’s daughter who survived the fire, was released from the hospital last April.

“We are able to cry about them [the seven children] with love and then be happy instead of crying about them and missing them and being depressed,” Gabriel Sassoon said on the radio interview. “So, I and my wife are trying to make our missing them for something better, to remember the love and the joy that we have. Through this, it’s possible to change the situation from something negative to something positive.”

The children, aged 5–15, were buried in Jerusalem.

Gabriel was at a religious conference when early March 22, a Shabbos morning, the fire, which authorities have blamed on a hot plate, burned though the house.
