Biala Bnei Brak Rebbe Taken to Hospital With Cardiac Emergency


Six years after he suffered a heart attack, the Biala Rebbe was rushed back to Ma’ayenei Hayeshua hospital in Bnei Brak after he suffered chest pains on Sunday.

The hospital has conducted a series of tests whose results will determine the next steps of medical care for the Rebbe.

The worry is multiplied as this is not the first time in which the Rebbe has had heart trouble.

The Rebbe previously suffered a heart attack in his home on Yerushalayim Street some six years ago. United Hatzalah first responders who were then dispatched to the Rebbe’s home transported him to Sheba hospital in Tel Hashomer. As a result of the attack, the Rebbe underwent a catheterization procedure and was eventually released back to his home a few days later.

Members of the Biala Chassidus are asking people to say tehillim for Yaakov Menachem ben Sara Rivkah.
