Rav Elyashiv Rushed to the Hospital, Now Stabilized


rav-yosef-shalom-elyashivUpdated: At approximately 2 o’clock this morning, the posek hador, Maran Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, was taken from his home on Rechov Chanan in Meah Shearim to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in Yerushalayim after suffering from shortness of breath. 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 may be suffering from pneumonia, though the cause and nature of his discomfort has not yet been positively identified.

Those close to Rav Elyashiv said that he was stabilized and that he was able to daven Shacharis this morning wearing his tallis and tefillin.

We hope and pray for Rav Elyashiv’s complete and speedy recovery.

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