The condition of Maran Hagaon Rav Chaim Epstein, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivah Zichron Meilich in Brooklyn, NY, has taken a turn for the worse and he is in need of rachamei Shomayim.
Rav Epstein, who has been battling a severe infection, has been hospitalized for over a week. This morning, his blood pressure and heart rate rapidly dropped and he was placed on a respirator. Currently, the rosh yeshiva‘s vitals are stable and has been sedated.
