Update on the Condition of Maran Rav Shteinman [UPDATED]


9:20AM IL: Officials at Mayanei HaYeshua Hospital in Bnei Brak are reporting a “certain improvement” in the condition of HaGaon HaRav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman Shlita but his condition still compels us to be mispallel for him, that he regains his strength and should be able to return home.

In the coming hour, Maran will undergo a procedure that requires blurring his level of awareness with anesthesia.

UPDATE: The procedure was completed successfully. The Rosh Yeshiva is resting.

The tzibur is called upon to continue being mispallel for Rav Aharon Yehuda Leib ben Gitel Feige among cholei Am Yisrael.

  1. Time and time again we and previous generations have seen, as the historical records prove, Gedolei Yisroel, Manhigei ha’Dor protect their generation. Once they are returned, whether due to our shortcomings, or some plan from HKB”H, sar tzilam; our protection leaves R”L. May we be zocheh to see his Refuah Shleimah b’soch shaar cholei Yisroel and an end to this bitter galus (in this very parshah –
    va’Yeishev – where the first galus began). HaRav Yosef Carlebach z”l is reported to have said, “Moshiach doesn’t come. . . We must bring him.” This does not happen by simply davenning for him, or stating we no longer want to wait (contrary to the Ani Maamin we say). Rather it happens bybus acting in ways which express we want him to come; being frustrated with the apparent absence of a clear understanding of HaShem’s presence in the world, showing it is Torah and mitzvos, not trips and money, that truly matter.

    I’m not bothered that you don’t like my comment but – for your own journalistic integrity – you should sharpen up your editorial quality.
