Hareidi Collapses in Jordan

A 28-year-old hareidi-religious Jew collapsed, Sunday evening in Jordan. The Magen David Adom and ZAKA emergency services worked all night in coordination with the Foreign Ministry, the consulate in Jordan and Jordanian authorities to arrange transporting him to Israel for treatment. With the stabilization of the man's condition, Israel is waiting final Jordanian approval for a helicopter to land there and bring him to Israel. People are asked to pray for Alex ben Haim, among the ailing of Israel.

Monday marks the first day of the Jewish month of Av, cited in this past week's Torah portion as the day on which Aaron the priest passed away. His burial place is in Jordan.
