Rabbi Elyashiv Undergoes Surgery

Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv signed in to Shaarei Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem on Wednesday for eye surgery. Schools and yeshivas across the country held special prayers for the rabbi’s swift recovery.

Rabbi Elyashiv is one of the leading rulers on Jewish law (halacha), particularly among hareidi-religious Jews of European descent.
