Rav Naftoli Hertzka Frankel, a senior member of the Badatz of the Eidah Hachareidis of Yerushalayim, sustained a brain hemorrhage on Thursday, 27 Nissan/May 5. He collapsed and was rushed to Hadassah Hospital in critical condition.
In order to ease the pressure on his brain, doctors immediately operated on his head, desperately trying to stabilize him.
Rav Frankel has been hospitalized for two weeks at the intensive care unit at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Yerushalayim. There has not been much change in his condition.
Thursday night, tefillos were held at various locations in Yerushalayim and Bnei Brak as a zechus for Rav Frankel.
Rabbonim who have visited Rav Frankel at the hospital include the Dorger Rebbe and Rav Frankel’s brother-in-law, Rav Moshe Weber, dayan with Machzikei Hadas-Belz, who both said Tehillim at his bedside.
Dr. Guy Rosenthal and Rav Frankel’s family will be meeting to determine a course of medical treatment going forward.
All are asked to daven for Rav Naftoli Hertzka ben Hinda.
