rav-elyashiv-gerer-rebbeA day after returning home following coronary artery surgery at Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim, Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv received a special visitor, the Gerer Rebbe, who traveled today to the centenarian posek hador‘s home on Rechov Chanan in Meah Shearim to be mevaker choleh and wish him a speedy recovery.

Those in Rav Elyashiv’s household say that the gadol‘s condition is excellent and that he is feeling better than he did prior to the surgery.

Upon entering his room, the Gerer Rebbe remarked that Rav Elyashiv “looks good,” boruch Hashem.

Rav Elyashiv responded that he is “not sure if tocho kebaro (i.e., I am not sure if my external appearance indicates inner health). But from what the doctors tell me, I am hopeful that tocho kebaro (e.g., that my health is as good as I appear).”

Klal Yisroel needs you,” responded the Rebbe. “May Hakadosh Boruch Hu grant you a refuah sheleimah.”

Rav Elyashiv and the Rebbe then engaged in a discussion relating to hilchos Shabbos before the Rebbe departed.
