Public Prayers for the Recovery of Maran HaRav Yosef Shalom Eliashiv shlita Still in Full Force
by Yechiel Sever
On Tuesday 25 Nisan there was a chizuk rally and public prayer gathering in the beis medrash of Maran shlita. With the full support of our leading gedolei Yisroel, prayers continue to be said throughout the Jewish world for the recovery of Maran HaRav Yosef Shalom ben Chaya Musha Eliashiv shlita, as in these very days the top medical specialists and devoted staff of the Shaare Zedek Medical Center undertake renewed supreme efforts in trying to significantly improve his condition which is still defined as critical, and there is definite need to pray and seek heavenly mercy for the success of these attempts, for his sake and the benefit of all Klal Yisroel.
HaRav Chaim Kanievsky shlita said: "Chazal say: `If a sick person is a talmid chochom, he should make himself ill over him,' meaning that one should pray over and again until he, himself becomes sick!"
In every Torah institution, every beis medrash, every yeshivas bein hazmanim, in all Jewish enclaves, the masses of Torah-true Jewry persevere in their intensified Torah study and prayers to the Creator for the speedy and complete recuperation of the pillar of all of Jewry.
