vizhnitzer-rebbe-of-monseyThe Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Monsey, Rav Mordechai Hager, was hospitalized today at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. The 89-year-old admor, who leads his chassidus in Kaser Village in Monsey, NY, had been feeling unwell since last week. The Rebbe has previously dealt with various ailments, including erysipelas in his leg. Upon the advice of doctors, the Rebbe was taken to the hospital for treatment.

The Rebbe is a brother of the 94-year-old Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak, Rav Moshe Yehoshua Hager, whose health condition has been of concern of late as well.

Tonight, Vizhnitzer chassidim will be gathering at the Shomrei Shabbos Zichron Meir Bais Hachaim to daven at the kever of the previous Vizhnitzer Rebbes.

All are asked to daven for a refuah sheleimah for Rav Mordechai ben Margolia.
