The bodies of the seven Orthodox Jewish siblings who perished when a fire ripped through their Brooklyn home arrived in Israel on Monday for burial – along with their devastated dad, whose wife and eldest daughter remain hospitalized with critical injuries.

Airport officials, police and members of the Chevra Kadisha, a religious group that handles the dead, set up a ring of barriers outside the El Al jetliner at Ben Gurion International Airport before passengers exited the plane.

The seven plain wooden caskets were removed from the plane and loaded into vans. The bodies the children, ages 5 to 16, were taken directly to the cemetery at Har HaMenuchot in Jerusalem.

The grieving father, Gabriel Sassoon, went to the cemetery, wearing the same clothing he wore at the funeral in Brooklyn on Sunday. He was surrounded by family, as he hugged and shook hands with mourners.

The funeral is scheduled for Monday afternoon in Israel.

Authorities say the fire in the Midwood home was ignited by a hot plate that malfunctioned while keeping food warm early Saturday. It had been left on so the family could observe a religious rule against working on the Sabbath.

The children — Yaakob, 5, Sara, 6, Moshe, 8, Yeshua, 10, Rivkah, 11, David, 12, and Eliane, 16 — were either declared dead at the scene or at hospitals.

Mom Gayle Sassoon, 45, and her second-eldest child, Siporah, 15, escaped the blaze by jumping from the home's second floor.

Gayle was listed in critical condition and fighting for her life in a hyperbaric chamber at Jacobi Medical Center in The Bronx. Siporah was at Staten Island University Hospital North.
