Reports from Shaare Zedek Medical Center indicate the rav was admitted shortly before Shabbos. His condition has since deteriorated, apparently due to a systemic infection.
HaGaon HaRav Chaim Pinchos Sheinberg Shlita, 101, is also the rav of the Kiryas Mattersdorf neighborhood of Yerushalayim.
The tzibur is requested to daven for HaRav Chaim Pinchos ben Yosefa for a refuah shleima b’soch kol cholei am yisrael.
