There has been a marked deterioration in the health of the Erlauer Rebbe, who is hospitalized at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Yerushalayim, where he has been since Shabbos.
At about midnight, there was a decline in his condition and doctors worked to remove
water from his lungs. Family and close Chassidim gathered at the hospital, concerned about the worsening situation.
The Rebbe is fully conscious.
Tefillah gatherings have been held in Erlau-affiliated botei medrash across the globe, as well as at the Kosel.
All are asked to daven for Rav Yochonon ben Tushena.
