Rav Elyashiv Taken to the Hospital


rav-yosef-shalom-elyashivThe condition of Maran Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv is deteriorating and he needs rachamei Shomayim. The gadol hador was taken today to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in Yerushalayim after he experienced shortness of breath. The hospitalization comes just two weeks after tests revealed that Rav Elyashiv has water in his lungs and that his heart is working only at 20 percent capacity.

An ambulance arrived at Rav Elyashiv’s home on Rechov Chanan in Meah Shearim and was then escorted by police to the hospital.

Doctors have said that Rav Elyashiv has been stabilized.

Just two weeks ago, Rav Elyashiv served as the mesader kiddushin at the wedding of his youngest grandchild, daughter of his son-in-law and daughter, Rav and Rebbetzin Binyomin Rimmer, in Yerushalayim

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

  1. Please change wording of article from deteriating to has deteriated! We hope that bh his condition isn’t cv deteriating, but rather a temporary set-back.

  2. Why is this not pinned to the top of the page that everyone should see and daven, instead of a photo of a rosho there with quotes from him???
