Tonight in Lakewood: Atzeres Tefillah for Rav Chaim Yisroel Belsky


Family members of Maran Rav Chaim Yisroel Belsky, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas in Kensington, Brooklyn, tell that talmidim of the rosh yeshiva and others will be gathering in Lakewood, NJ, tonight to daven for a refuah sheleimah.

The gathering will be held at Khal Zichron Yaakov (Rav Gissinger’s shul), located at 175 Sunset Road, at 10 p.m.

Boruch Hashem, as previously reported on Matzav, the rosh yeshiva had an uneventful Shabbos and there have been some slight encouraging signs of improvement. The rosh yeshiva is still in very serious condition, however, and in need of rachamei Shomayim.

Talmidim from around the world continue to be mispallel for the rosh yeshiva. At this time, a special trip is underway to Kever Rochel in Eretz Yisroel.

The Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation will be having another Tehillim teleconference at 10:45 p.m. tonight with Rav Leizer Ginsberg. Call the Chazak Hotline at 718-258-2008, Menu 9, Option 1.

All are asked to daven for Rav Chaim Yisroel ben Chana Tzirel l’refuah shelaimah b’soch she’ar cholei amo Yisroel.
