Eliyahu13.jpgOfficials in Yerushalayim’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center on Sunday reported an improvement in the condition of Rishon L’Tzion HaRav Mordechai [Tzemach ben Mazel] Eliyahu Shlita, who last week suffered a stroke. He has since undergone a surgical procedure on his head, performed by neurosurgeons in Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. The Rav was then brought back to Shaare Zedek.

While doctors were pleased to relay good news, they explain the improvement is slight, adding the Rav is now breathing spontaneously and is no longer connected to a mechanical respirator. Nevertheless, his condition is listed serious.

During a visit to the hospital last week, the Rav’s condition deteriorated suddenly and he required resuscitation.

On Tuesday night his condition took a sharp turn for the worse, and on Wednesday afternoon, he suffered a stroke. He was transported to Hadassah for the surgical procedure and then back to Shaare Tzedek. Family and associates of the Rav request Jews around the world recite Tehillim on his behalf.
