Prayer Vigil Being Held for Rabbi Elyashiv


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu received an update on the condition of Rabbi Shalom Yosef Elyashiv from Deputy Health Minister Ya'akov Litzman. Rabbi Elyashiv is in critical condition in Shaare Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem. He is currently on a respirator. Dozens of his students, rabbinical figures, and public officials are gathered in the hospital outside Rabbi Elyashiv's room, as a mark of their concern and honor for one of the senior Ashkenazic rabbinical leaders today.

A prayer vigil is being held Monday night at 10:30 PM at the Kotel to pray for Rabbi Elyashiv's health.
