Yidden 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.
