TEHILLIM: Chacham Shalom Cohen’s Son Critically Injured In Freak Accident

HaRav Ephraim Cohen, a Rosh Mesivta in Yeshivas Yakirei Yerushalayim, the son of the Nasi of the Moetzet Chachmei HaTorah, Chacham Shalom Cohen, was critically injured in a freak accident on Wednesday night.

As Rav Cohen was walking home from the yeshivah on Rechov Yirmiyahu in Jerusalem, where extensive roadwork has been taking place, a passing bus hit a construction pipe that was lying on the road, which flew up and forcefully hit him on the head.

Paramedics carried out emergency treatment and evacuated him in a mobile intensive unit to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in critical condition from a severe head injury. At the hospital, he underwent emergency surgery on his head and he is now hospitalized in the intensive care unit, sedated and ventilated.

The family requests that the public daven fervently for the refuah of Rav Ephraim ben Yael b’toch shaar cholei Yisrael.

  1. There is no such thing as a “freak accident”. Especially for a tzaddik like this. It was with direct hashgacha pratis. Many peoples children are mevakesh lechem. but a tzaddik’s children are never mivakesh lechem because he is a neezav, chas v’shalom. It is always a psak din with direcrt hashgacha.
    This is a diyuk I heard from my Rebbe, Hagoan Harav Yaakov Weinberg zt”l from Ner Yisroel. the term freak accident goes against the fact that Hkb”h is running the world. May his zechus HaTorah and the fact that rabim tzrichim lo grant him a refuah shelaima bsoch shaar cholei yisroel!!
