Hagon Rav Scheinberg In Critical Condition; In Same ICU Unit As Maran Rav Elyashiv


Please be Mispallel for Hagon HaRav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg Shlita, who is in extremely critical condition. As was first reported by YWN Israel, Rav Scheinberg has been hospitalized at Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim since before Shabbos.

Sources tell YWN that Rav Scheinberg is in the very same room of the ICU in Shaarei Zedek with Maran HaRav Elyashiv Shlita. There are reportedly three beds in the room, one with Rav Scheinberg, one with Rav Elyashiv, and an empty bed in between them. Rav Scheinberg has a bad blood infection, major kidney problems, is sedated and is on a respirator.

The tzibur is requested to daven for Chaim Pinchos ben Yospa, and Yosef Shalom ben Chaya Musha for a refuah shleima b’soch kol cholei am yisrael.

(Eli Gefen – YWN)


  1. It’s interesting how the Gedolim who are sick that we’re davening for now, all have the word חיים in their name:
    יוסף שלום בן חיה מושא
    חיים פנחס בן יוספה
    יעקב חי בן מרגלית
    חיים ישראל בן חנה צירל (the only one that the name חיים was added to)
    מתתיהו חיים בן עטעל

    IY”H they will all have חיים ארוכים

  2. To all former and current talmidim of Torah Ore and klal yisroel, please let’s all do an extra mitzva,good deed,extra learning,tehillim, like the rosh yeshiva (r c.p, sheinberg shilta)always says “chop a nosh,chop a nosh” (catch another mitzvah,dvar torah,good deed)in that zchus may the rosh yeshiva r chaim pinchas ben yospa and r Elashiv, Yosef Shalom ben Chaya Musha r’ belsky , r solomon have a refuah shleima b’soch kol cholei am yisrael.

  3. Rabbosai
    Are we asleep? Do we not see what is going on in the world? The gedolim who are nebech ill and those who have passed on. The yidden that are being killed in the streets because they are yidden.
    We must all wake up and say tehillim with tears streaming. More important than anything else: treat every Jew with respect.
    The word yisroel are the roshei teivos for yesh shishim ribui osiyos letorah coresponding to the 600,000 that left mitzrayim. If even 1 letter is missing the whole Sefer is possul. Similarly every single yid is important no matter who he is.

  4. Per Rav Yisrael Belsky, Shlita, the names Yuspa and Yosefa (the name of Rav Scheinberg’s mother) are the same name. I asked him this question when naming a child, and he said they were varient pronunciations of the same name, spelled the same way.

    an Israeli Yid

  5. To number 6: Thank you for your beautiful words. We should all take your words to heart. Treat every Jew with respect. That’s something we all need to work on. No matter what material he’s wearing on his head, or his type of pants or the color of his shirt etc.

    In these difficult times with so many of the generation’s great Rabbis lying in hospital beds, how about everyone takes upon themselves to stop judging each other and stop making horrible comments towards each other, but rather start treating each other with respect and love in the z’chus of a refuah shleimah for our leaders.
