Rabbi Avraham Salim, the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Meor Torah, was injured in a car accident on Wednesday in Sao Paulo, Brazil, while he was on a fundraising trip for his yeshiva.
According to a Kikar Shabbos report, Rabbi Salim had been working to raise funds for the Yeshiva in the South American country in order to fulfill his matching campaign for the Yeshiva.
As a result of the accident, the Rosh Yeshiva’s feet were crushed. He is currently receiving treatment in a local hospital. According to reports from Brazil, there is no danger to Rabbi Salim’s life. Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, who heads the Sha faction in the Knesset has begun working diplomatically to bring Rabbi Salim back to Israel to continue his treatment here.
Please say tehillim for Avraham Nissim Ben Mazel.
