According to reports from Jerusalem's Sha'arei Tzedek Medical Center, the condition of Rabbi Yoseph Shalom Elyashiv continues to be very serious. The rabbi is suffering from pain and high fever while under sedation and respiration. Doctors are also trying to deal with water on his lungs and a blood infection.
In addition to requests by the family, announcements are being made in the capital's hareidi neighborhoods, calling on the public to pray for Rabbi Yoseph Shalom ben Chaya Mousha. Many synagogues in the neighborhoods held services, starting at 11:00 p.m.
