pintoRabbi Yoshiyahu Pinto underwent successful surgery in NYC on Wednesday, 11 Elul. The rav was given special permission by the courts to leave Israel to have the surgery, which is related to the cancer he is battling. The rabbi’s doctors are quoted expressing satisfaction following the surgery.

Leaders of the Shuva Yisrael Kehilla headed by Rav Pinto call on the tzibur to continue being mispallel on the rav’s behalf.

The rav was being treated in NYC a number of months ago but was compelled to return to Israel because of the legal proceedings against him. Despite objections from the prosecution, the High Court of Justice agreed to permit the rav to leave Israel once again to continue his medical treatment. Justice Anat Brown rejected the prosecution’s contention that the rabbi is a flight risk, citing he has returned in the past.
