Healthy 45-Year-Old Mother Died From Corona


For the past month the community of Petach Tikva prayed fervently for the recovery of Devorah Broiner, a 45 year old mother of 8 who was in serious condition with COVID. Despite their community prayers and efforts, however, Mrs. Broiner passed away last week, sending ripples of shock through the many who knew and admired her family.

Broiner had no pre-existing conditions, and her family had expected her to recover from the virus easily. When she began to have difficulty breathing, she was taken to the hospital, and she never returned home.

Mrs. Broiner was a high school principal and is described by loved ones as “a woman of chesed, who helped many families.”

The youngest of the 8 Broiner children is only 6 years old. 

The children and their father are devastated by grief. A fund has been opened to help raise the children with security and safety after their horrific loss.

  1. BDE. So tragic! It would be very helpful to readers to include whether or not she was vaccinated or not. Many ppl are getting covid after being vaccinated for it. Idk why.
    Also helpful would be let us know if she got treatment in the first 5 days? Did she take Zelenko protocol? Was she left to wait it out? Details matter.
    If you don’t treat strep, it gets worse. Doesn’t mean strep is deadly. Just need to know what to do. We have to stop using deaths to scare ppl and tell the whole story.

  2. EIGHT yesomim are mourning their mother, and you need to know if she used Zelenko’s protocol?
    You just need to know what to do? Why don’t you ask your own doctor? If you don’t trust him enough, find a very expensive one on Park Avenue, and ask that one, instead.
    What, exactly, will change, if she did or did not get the vaccine, and/or the French protocol that Dr. Zelenko promoted as his own? Oh, right, then you will be able to say that you “heard about someone, whom you didn’t know, and aren’t even sure if the information is correct altogether, but you heard that ….”.

    • Comment # 1 may have gone too far with inquiring the details, but so did you in your rebuttal.

      And #1 did have an important point: Why do we care that this was a healthy person before, as the article states? Why the details? We are saddened only because of the loss itself. They could have left those details out.

      It DOES sound like a scare tactic/headline. And if so, the article should tell the whole story.
