A Fire Exploded Engulfing Reb Chanoch Regal Zatz"al

The image of their father in flames, will cling to them forever! His desperate cries echo in the void he left!

Erev Pesach, with the Seder table laid, the 3 young Regal children excitedly watched their father burn the Chometz. Neighbors participated from overhanging porches - Sreifes Chometz under quarantine conditions.

Then the unimagable occured

The fire exploded, engulfing Reb Chanoch Regal Zatz"al in a ball of flames, to the horrer of his wife and children! Screaming and howling, his wife, Mrs. Chayelle Regal grabbed a hose to extinguish the flames. As a result of her heroic attempt, she too, was badly burned, sustaining third-degree burns. (Please continue to daven for Chaya Reizel bas Soreh Rivka Alte Gittel) In a whirl of smoke and sirens, Reb Chanoch and his wife were rushed to the ICU with severe third-degree burns!

Tragically, early in the morning of Erev Shabbos Parshas Shmini, 23 Nissan 5780, Reb Chanoch returned his neshamah to his Maker leaving behind 3 young yesomin!
