  1. L’kaayem Banu Chachmei Yisroel!

    The Tzibbur is asked to Daven for Rav Shlomo Brevda, Shlita, who is in the ICU suffering from a serious illness and needs our Tefillos. Saying Tehillim daily in his Zechus for the Refuah Shelaima of “Rav Shlomo Leib Ben Miriam” would be greatly appreciated.

    Rav Brevda requested that we increase the intensity of our Tefillos during Dovening and say Tehillim (day and/or night) whenever the opportunity arises. He feels in very dire straights. Please request that a Misheberech to be said for the Rav during Kryias HaTorah.

    Thank you.

  2. He had heart failure and infection in both lungs. Serious matzav. Please daven. If anyone knows updates, please post.
    Another son-in-law is Rabbi Akiva Kaplan of Monsey, Rosh Kollel in Monsey and longtime Rebbi in Mesivta D’South Monsey. Another son-in-law is Rabbi Ezzy Klein, Rebbi in Slomowitz in Lakewood and Rosh Kollel of a kollel in Lakewood.

  3. Rabbi Brog shlita has done and continues to do a great deal for our family. We need him so much in this generation. I am crying to Ribbono Shel Olam to give us more time. Please daven. Please. We are baalei teshuva. He is like a father to us! Rabbi Brevda shlita raised us with his shiurim.

    These people hold up our generation because everything for them is about serving Hashem, everything is about loving another Yid and giving. Hashem should hear all of our tefillos for both Shmuel Elchonon ben Yocheved and Shlomo Leib ben Miriam in the same hospital now 5 floors apart.

  4. Rabbi Shmuel Elchonon Brog was my teacher and mentor at Yeshiva Chaim Berlin. He and his wonderful wife walked me and my wife down the aisle at our wedding. He will surely be missed. Rabbi Brevda gave me a brocha for my marriage. He and I are friends forever. A complete refua Shelayma for Rabbi Brevda.
