Admor of Shomrei Emunim Undergoes Catheterization


Thousands prayed, Monday afternoon, for the health of the rebbe of the Shomrei Emunim hasidic sect, who collapsed during Monday morning prayers at his study hall in Jerusalem. He was resuscitated by Ichud Hatzalah paramedics, but his condition deteriorated while he was evacuated to nearby Bikur Holim Hospital, although it was reported that his situation was serious but stable.

The rebbe underwent catheterization after he was diagnosed with pulmonary edema. People are asked to pray for the complete recovery of Rabbi Avraham Chaim ben Sima among the other patients of Israel.
