rav-nissim-karelitzAfter some three months of hospitalization, Rav Nissim Karelitz, rosh kollel of Kollel Chazon Ish in Bnei Brak, has returned to his home on Rechov Rashbam in Bnei Brak.

The 88-year-old gaon and senior posek was admitted to Mayanei Hayeshuah Hospital in Bnei Brak twelve weeks ago after suffering from shortness of breath. Rav Karelitz had been suffering from various ailments.

For now, minyanim will be held at Rav Karelitz’s home and he will be unable to meet with members of the public as he rests and convalesces.

Rav Nissim, who was born in July 1926 in the town of Vilna, is the av bais din of the bais din of Bnei Brak and av bais din of the Ramat Aharon neighborhood.  He is a nephew of the Chazon Ish, whose sister was Rav Nissim’s mother. His rebbetzin is a daughter of Rav Tzvi Hirsch Kopshitz and a great-granddaughter of Rav Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld.

All are asked to daven for Rav Shmaryahu Yosef Nissim ben Basya l’refuah shlaymah.

    Eevery time you mention someones age, (how old he is what he is up to etc…) you put a ayin hara on him & his life.

    Imagine if we made a newsletter every time a gadol Hador’s birthday came up…. it would make a big ayin hara & put a klala (curse) on his life C”V. We need our gedolim to guide us today-even more then in previous generations.

    Please stop writing on living people how old they are

    May he have a refuah shleima & may all gedolim-& everyone else-live until 120
