Na'im Ovadia, the brother of Rabbi Ovadia Yoseph, is in serious condition at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, according to a Thursday-evening report by Behadrei Hareidim. On Wednesday, he underwent a partially successful catheterization operation and another such operation was scheduled for Friday. His health has deteriorated in the past month or so due to complications following surgery to repair a broken leg suffered in a fall.
On Rosh Hashana, Naim prayed alongside his brother at the hospital. Rabbi Yoseph is constantly updated on his situation and praying for him. The public is asked to pray for Naim Ovadia ben Jarjiya.
