Rav Matisyahu Salomon Hospitalized


rav-matisyahu-salomonAll are asked to say Tehillim for Rav Matisyahu Salomon, mashgiach of Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ, who was taken to the hospital tonight. The name for Tehillim is Matisyahu Chaim ben Ettil.

Rav Salomon is stable after sustaining a fall and subsequently being taken from his home on Sixth Street to Kimball Medical Center by Hatzolah paramedics.

Rav Salomon served for 30 years as mashgiach ruchani and senior mashgiach of Gateshead Yeshiva, which was initially led by Rav Moshe Schwab. In 1998, Rav Salomon moved to Lakewood and assumed the position of mashgiach at America’s largest yeshiva, Beth Medrash Govoha.

The mashgiach and his wife, Rebbetzin Miriam, have been supremely devoted to the larger American Olam Hatorah since their arrival on these shores some 13 years ago, making themselves available to one and all for guidance and chizuk.

May the mashgiach have a refuah sheleimah.

  1. These are our pillars of Torah. A tear trickels down my cheek, as I remember the god old days in Gateshead Yeshivah, when he would personaly come and wake me up for tefillah, just as a father would do to his beloved child.
    The good old days in Gateshead.
