Chabad Teacher Dies Two Months After Brother Killed in Gaza

Rabbi Nadav Yehuda Natan, a melamed at the Chabad Cheder in Chadera, passed away of heart failure just two months after his brother, Yissachar Natan HYD, fell in battle with Hamas terrorists.


The Chabad community mourns the death of 39-year-old Rabbi Nadav Yehuda Natan from the city of Charish. Rabbi Natan’s younger brother Yissachar Natan HYD fell in battle with the Hamas terrorists two months ago. Friends say that Rabbi Natan was heartbroken at his brother’s death and died of a sudden cardiac arrest.

He is survived by his wife and six children, as well as his parents, Rav Avishai and Leah Natan, who are among the founding members of the Nachlas Har Chabad community in Kiryat Malachi.

Rabbi Nadav Yehuda Natan was a melamed at the Chabad Cheder in Chadera, and is described as a “stellar educator and a sweet and special person.”

Hundreds of people demonstrated in Jerusalem due to police demands to perform an autopsy on the body of Rabbi Natan, although Zaka officials say that the cause of death is already known.

May his memory be blessed.
