rav-shmuel-wosnerAll are asked to daven for the welfare of Rav Shmuel Halevi Wosner, senior posek, author of the Shevet Halevi and rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Chachmei Lublin in Bnei Brak, whose condition worsened over Shabbos.Rav Wosner is hospitalized at Mayanei Hayeshuah Medical Center in Bnei Brak, where he is sedated and hooked up to a respirator.

Sources indicate that he is experiencing some level of kidney failure. Before Shabbos, an American doctor was called to stabilize Rav Wosner’s condition, but the situation remains extremely serious.

Rav Wosner is 101 years old.

Born in 1913 in Vienna, Austria, Rav Wosner learned in the famous Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin in Poland led by Rav Meir Shapiro, and married and moved to Eretz Yisroel before World War II, living in Yerushalayim where he learned at the Dushinsky Yeshiva. Despite his young age, he became a member of the Eidah Hachareidis.

When Rav Wosner moved to the Zichron Meir neighborhood of Bnei Brak, at the urging of the Chazon Ish, the Tchebiner Rov, Rav Isser Zalman Meltzer and others, he established his Yeshiva Chachmei Lublin, bearing the same name as the one in Lublin where he had learned in his youth.

May Hakadosh Boruch Hu give Rav Wosner kochos and gezunt for many, many more years.

All are asked to daven for Rav Shmuel Haleivi ben Rochel.
