Rav Yaakov Yosef Hospitalized With Cardiac Incident [UPDATED 9:46PM IL]

7:10PM IL: Channel 2 correspondent Uri Revach reports that HaGaon HaRav Yaakov Yosef has suffered a cardiac incident and is admitted to Shaare Zedek Hospital since Sunday. The rav is admitted to the cardiology unit and is conscious and alert, speaking with those around him, and undergoing diagnostic tests.

It appears the pressure of the Emanuel Beis Yaakov case has taken a toll on many of the players, including HaGaon HaRav Yaakov Yosef, who on Sunday canceled all his shiurim.

Kikar Shabbat reports the rav gives 40 shiurim weekly around the country, attended by hundreds. Those who were inquiring regarding the cancellation were told by family members that the rav was resting in bed, not feeling well.

UPDATE 9:46PM IL: Shaare Zedek Medical Center reports Rabbi Yaakov Yosef is in good condition.

  1. Can we please have is mother’s name so that we can daven for him. I have met him – and for those who have not he is truly a Tzadik.

  2. #4 the rav stated in fridays interview, lalum did not drag him into this.he took this on himself so as not to be like the rabbis in kamtza and bar kamtza who kept quiet.

  3. If Lalum dragged Rav Yosef into this, he needs to do teshuva for the harm he has done to Rav Yosef. If Rav Yosef put himself into this, he both needs to do teshuva and see a psychiatrist.

  4. #s 4 and 6. In case you have forgotten, we are entering the three weeks. Could you knock off your rechilus and sinas chinam for three weeks?
