The Chicago YIVO Society extends most sincere condolences to our leyenkrayz member Sema Menora.  As reported by the Daily Herald: “Moshe Menora was taking his grandchildren on a plane trip when he encountered problems taking off and crashed on Highway 75.”  As of this post, grandson Yossi Menora, who suffered burns to half his body, is still under care in a Michigan hospital.  But his three sisters (Rikki, Rachel and Sara) and their grandfather (Sema’s husband Moshe) all died instantly.

Aug 13 Update: An update posted today on Yossi’s “CaringBridge” page indicates that he is now in rehab: “He’s got a whole new crew falling in love with him.  He’s pushing hard and is in a lot less pain. All is good, thank Gd.”
