Oldest Nadvorna Rebbe Hospitalized in Serious Condition

The oldest Nadvorna rebbe, Rabbi Asher Yeshayahu Leifer, was hospitalized, Sunday, in serious condition, at Columbia Hospital in Manhattan after a severe decline in health. Rabbi Leifer, approaching 100 years of age, lived in Bnei Brak, but served as the rebbe of the Nadvorna community in Hadera. A few years ago, he went to the United States to participate in a happy occasion with one of his descendants but because of his advanced age and weakness, he was forced to stay.

The rabbi's followers are asking the public to pray for the full recovery of Rabbi Asher Yeshayahu ben Malkah, among the sick of Israel.
