Just a short time after he was released from hospital, Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv attended a brit milah (circumcision) ceremony and served as the sandak (the person who holds the baby during the circumcision).

The 101-year-old rabbi, who heads the worldwide Lithuanian yeshiva movement and considered the community’s leading Torah sage of this generation, was hospitalized on Saturday night following shortness of breath. He continues to be under close medical supervision.
