Reports from Tel Hashomer Hospital on Sunday morning on the condition of HaGaon HaRav Shlomo Ben-Shimon, who collapsed on Shabbos in his beis medrash, N’vei Yitzchak in Bnei Brak, indicate he remains in serious condition and is in need of tefilos. He went into cardiac arrest on Shabbos afternoon.
The rav underwent a cardiac catheterization on motzei Shabbos after collapsing. Shas party chairman Minister Aryeh Deri has visited the rav in the hospital, and he spoke with the head of intensive care medicine to get an understanding of the rav’s condition.
Family members explain that he struck his head when he fell to the ground. After consulting with HaGaon HaRav Shalom Cohen Shlita, head of the Shas Moetzas Gedolei Torah, it was decided to add the name Yechiel.
People are asked to gather for a tefilla at the kever of Rav Yechiel’s brother, HaGaon Chacham Mantzur ben Shimon ZT”L, who is buried next to Rav Mashash ZT”L ZY”A. Rabbonim will be taking part in the tefilla.
The tzibur is asked to be mispallel for Yechiel Shlomo ben Yafeh Jamila bsoch cholei yisrael.
