The Four Lakewood Roshei Yeshiva Declare Day of Prayer for Mashgiach

soloThis Tuesday is not only asarah b’taives, but in Lakewood, it is a day of prayer for the health and well-being of Rav Matisyahu Salomon shlita, the beloved Mashgiach of the Yeshiva, declared a letter signed by the four Roshei Yeshiv of BMG in Lakewood.

The Mashgiach’s situation is rather tenuous and he requires “much Rachamei shamayim,” the letter stated.

His name is Rav Matisyahu Chaim ben Ettel.

It was signed by Rav Aryeh Malkiel Kotler, Rav Yerucham Olshin, Rav Dovid Schustal, and Rav Yisroel Neuman.

Rav Salomon became mashgiach ruchani of Gateshead Yeshiva, a position he held for more than 30 years. He was mashgiach in Gateshead Yeshiva initially under Rabbi Moshe Schwab and then as the senior mashgiach, before moving to Lakewood in the spring of 1998. Rav Salomon was succeeded at Gateshead by Rabbi Mordechai Yosef Karnowsky.

It may be recalled that the Mashgiach was hospitalized last month, but did make a recovery.
