While HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita takes a daily walk towards remaining healthier, the gadol has not done so over recent days those close to him report. It is reported that for the past year Rav Chaim walks for 15 minutes daily, following his neitz minyan. The walk is usually in a quiet area so Rav Chaim is not constantly disturbed by passersby.
While the walk is geared to assist Rav Chaim’s health, the rav feels that it is not proper for him to be walking around while so many Jews are seated in shelters with sirens wailing outdoors. Rav Chaim is well aware of their fears and anxieties and this has led him to eliminate his daily walk for the time being.
