Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a letter of condolence to Gabriel Sasson who lost seven children in a house-fire in Brooklyn on the weekend. 

"There is no greater tragedy than the loss of sons and daughters, and the pain is even greater when the children are so young," Netanyahu wrote in the letter. 

"The entire nation of Israel feels your pain," he added. 

The seven children, ranging in age from sixteen to five-years-old were buried on Monday in Jerusalem.
