Rav Elyashiv Returns Home, Visits Kosel


rav-elyashiv1The posek hador, Maran Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, has returned to his home on Rechov Chanan in Meah Shearim after being rushed to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in Yerushalayim this past Motzoei Shabbos due to shortness of breath.

Rav Elyashiv visited the Kosel on his way home and also served as sandek at a bris, according to Shlomo Kook, son of Rav Bentzion Kook, close talmid of Rav Elyashiv. It is well known that Rav Elyashiv is particular about visiting the Kosel at least once in 30 days. In this way, he is assured of avoiding the halachic question of tearing kriyah upon seeing the makom haMikdosh.

As reported here on Matzav.com, early Sunday morning, a full medical team first attempted to treat Rav Elyashiv at his home before taking him to the hospital for further treatment and examination. The centenarian gadol hador was fully conscious and has now been stabilized.

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