B’chasdei Hashem, there is a significant improvement in the condition of HaGaon HaRav Refoel Shmuel Yaakov Bornstein, who was in serious condition in Mayanei HaYeshua Hospital last week.
It appears the Rosh Hayeshiva’s diminished cardiac outpost may have been caused by infection and doctors are slowly decreasing the anesthesia to bring him out of the medically-induced state. It is stressed that his condition is still serious, but Baruch Hashem not critical.
The tzibur is asked to continue to be mispallel for Refoel Shmuel Yaakov ben Yehudis Tzviya bsoch shar cholei yisrael.
The name “Refoel” was added to Harav Shmuel Yaacov Borenstein’s name at the behest or Harav Chaim Kanievsky. Please add this name to his name for tefillos.
