Hagaon Harav Yosef In Hospital for Tests

YERUSHALAYIM -

Hagaon Harav Ovadia Yosef, shlita, was reportedly in good condition on Sunday, after being hospitalized in the morning after suffering severe back pain on Shabbos.

“Rabbi Yosef feels well and is under constant supervision,” said Professor Haim Lotan, director of Hadassah Ein Kerem’s cardiac unit, adding that he will remain in the hospital to undergo several days of tests and observation, Arutz Sheva reported.

On Motzoei Shabbos Rav Yosef’s personal physician was consulted, and he recommended hospital care. His family has asked the public not to come to visit in the hospital in order to avoid disturbing the medical staff.

Harav Yosef underwent back surgery last month.
