Update: Tefillos for Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg


chaim-pinchos-scheinbergYidden the world over are asked to say Tehillim, daven and learn as a zechus for Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg, the venerable rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Ore in Yerushalayim, who is currently at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.

Rav Scheinberg arrived in the United States last month to attend the annual dinner of Yeshiva Torah Ore, which was held last Sunday and where he was honored for a lifetime of harbotzas haTorah.

This past week, he was taken to Mount Sinai, where he was diagnosed with a gall bladder infection. As of this writing, surgery has not been performed on the 100-year-old rosh yeshiva, as it is hoped that the antibiotics administered by physicians will prevent the need for a procedure. Matzav.com has been told that the physicians were unsure as to whether surgery should be performed, and they consulted with Rav Dovid Feinstein, rosh yeshiva of Mesivta Tiferes Yerushalayim and one of the leading halachic authorities in the country, who has guided them in this regard.

The name for Tehillim is Rav Chaim Pinchos ben Yosefa.

As reported here last month, Rav Scheinberg turned 100 shortly before the Yomim Noraim. Click here to read the report.

  1. Rav Chaim Pinchos is a great and holy Yid. If every jew had only one tenth of one percent the kedushah and torah of this gadol, moshiach would come! Ribbono shel Olam! Your children so desperately need great men of Torah like this holy man! Grant him a refuah shleimah!!

  2. Several years ago I heard from someone very close to Rav Scheinberg that the rosh yeshiva would stop traveling to America when he turned 100. Maybe the traveling is too much!

    As an American, I’d much rather that Rav Scheinberg was safe at 2 Panim Meirot, then running to the US, and then needing hospitalized recuperation!

    America needs the chizuk of visits from Gedolei Eretz Yisroel, and Rav Scheinberg has surely given his share to Yehudei Artzot Habrit. Let someone younger carry that torch now!!

  3. Refuah Shelaima, Refuas Hanefesh Refuas Haguf. Bkarov, B’Ezras Hashem Yisborach. Heilige Tatte heal the Tzaddik V’Gadol B’Torah Rosh Yeshiva Rav Chaim Pinchas Ben Yospa. I remember I recieved a bracha from him on one of his visits to America a couple of years back. It is something I will always remember.

  4. A quick story that shows his gadlus that took place when he was about 96. He told someone that due to his age he can’t concentrate on gemara as well as he would like to. Therefore he planned on traveling more often to the States to raise needed funds for the yeshiva so he “can use his time well.”
    may he have a refua sheima and many more years of harbatzas torah.
