Continued Tefillos for Maran Rav Elyashiv


rav-elyashiv2The health condition of the posek hador, Maran Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, has remained of great concern to his personal doctors, as Rav Elyashiv continues to feel general weakness, whose cause and nature have not yet been positively identified.

Gedolim in Eretz Yisroel have issued a letter calling on Yidden to daven for the health of Rav Elyashiv. The letter is signed by Maranan Rav Aharon Leib Steinman, Rav Shmuel Wosner, Rav Chaim Kanievsky, Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg and Rav Shmuel Auerbach.

The Israeli Yated Ne’eman announced on its front page this morning, Monday, that three days of tefillah have been instituted this week in the merit of a refuah for the Rabbon Shel Yisroel.

Tefillah gatherings will be held today, tomorrow and Wednesday in Yerushalayim, at the Kosel, and elsewhere around the county. Bnei Torah all over the world will be learning Torah as a zechus for Rav Elyashiv.

Two weeks ago, just two days following cataract surgery, Rav Elyashiv lost consciousness after he fainted. Rav Elyashiv regained consciousness shortly thereafter. Back in June, Rav Elyashiv underwent successful surgery to repair a coronary artery near his heart.

All are asked to continue davening for Rav Yosef Shalom ben Chaya Musha.

  1. I thought they reported two weeks ago that Maran Shlit’a had an ear infection. Ear infections (especially in the elderly) can cause dizziness, fainting and weakness.

    Wishing him a Refuah Sheleima, he should have Koach to fast on Y’K.

  2. #3 , We are being told here on that two of our senior gedolim need out prayers. We had a drowning in Uman of a 19 year old boy just now. And your telling me that ourt prayers are up to par? Get well soon~!

  3. our gedolim are the ones who hold up the world! everyone please daven your hearts out- may Hashem listen to all of our tefillos and send a refua shelama.
