HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Auerbach Hospitalized


The Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Maalos Hatorah, HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Auerbach Shlita, was taken to the hospital during the night of 27 Tishrei (Monday to Tuesday) and was admitted. He was not feeling well and may have pneumonia. He was admitted to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

The Rosh Yeshiva was mesader keddushin for a talmid in Bnei Brak and complained of not feeling well and difficulty breathing afterward. He was taken to the hospital from the chupah.

Those close to the Rosh Yeshiva explain he is sitting up in his room and his condition is “good”.

The tzibur is urged to be mispallel for Shmuel ben Chaya Rivka bsoch shar cholei yisrael.

  1. Hopefully the traffic jams caused by the Hafganot, that he is inspiring/spearheading won’t cause delay in him gettin to the hospital!!
    Refuah shlaiamah

  2. These remarks are totally disgusting and nasty
    I don’t know why they r even publicized
    I live in Yerushalaim and am not what we call an “EtsNik” but no one I know would talk against Rav Shmuel !!!!

  3. Yerushalmit, you have it wrong. Plenty of people, Haredim l’dovar Hashem, will talk against someone who fails to speak up for what the Torah requires of us. It requires of us that we do not steal from other people. That includes stealing time. The Torah requires of us that we do not cause others damage. That includes creating traffic chaos that prevents people getting on flights they have booked and thus losing money by not being able to get to work. All this has to be said in as clear and straight way as possible. Of course non one wishes Rav Shmuel anything other than a refua shleima but he is lucky he was able to get to hospital quickly last night. The traffic jams in the direction of Bnei Brak would have ensured he was delayed for a very long time.
