Tefillos for Maran Rav Shteinman


rav-aharon-leib-shteinmanMaran Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman has been in extreme pain, causing the possible cancellation of some of his regular shiurim. The senior rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Orchos Torah and Yeshiva Gaon Yaakov in Bnei Brak has suffered severe pain in his legs due to inflammation, making it difficult for the centenarian gadol to walk.

On the two days of Rosh Hashanah, Rav Shteinman walked from his home at 5 Rechov Chazon Ish to Yeshiva Gaon Yaakov, on Rechov Nechemiah, an estimated half hour walk for the rosh yeshiva, and this labored walk may have aggravated his pain.

Rav Shteinman has made it his duty each year to walk to Yeshiva Gaon Yaakov, which is led by his son-in-law, Rav Zev Berlin, to daven Mussaf and hear tekias shofar there.

On Erev Rosh Hashanah, Rav Shteinman spoke at Yeshivas Mir in Yerushalayim. During the Aseres Yemei Teshuvah, he customarily delivers divrei hisorerus at Yeshivas Ponovezh, Yeshivas Slabodka, and elsewhere, but now, due to his condition, it is not clear that Rav Shteinman will be able to leave his home.

All are asked to daven for Rav Aharon Yehudah Leib ben Gittel Faiga.
