The mother of the Pupa Rebbe, Rebbetzin Miriam Greenwald, wife of the previous rebbe of Pupa, Rav Yosef Greenwald, author of the Vayechi Yosef, is in serious condition and in need of rachamei Shomayim.
The first day of Yom Tov, the news reached Williamsburg that the 100-year-old rebbetzin was rushed to the hospital.
On Motzoei Shabbos, following the Seder, which ended at 5 a.m., news arrived that the situation of the rebbetzin was critical and that a quick decision had to be made as to whether to perform an emergency operation or not. The rebbe, Rav Yaakov Yechezkiya Greenwald, traveled together with his brother, Rav Aharon Greenwald, dayan of Pupa, to the hospital and returned before davening. They were driven by an aino Yehudi to the hospital.
The rebbetzin‘s situation has been serious for the last two months.
All are asked to daven for Rebbetzin Miriam bas Chana.
