YERUSHALAYIM – Ever since Hagaon Harav Aharon Leib Steinman, shlita, was hospitalized Motzoei Shabbos, the eyes and ears of Klal Yisrael have been focused on the Mayanei HaYeshua Hospital in Bnei Brak.
Hamodia spoke Sunday afternoon (Israel time) with one of the close confidants of the Rosh Yeshivah for an update on the situation.
He says that while obviously at the age of the Rosh Yeshivah any slight medical change could be crucial, the situation as it stands now, is stable. The Rosh Yeshivah was admitted to hospital, he notes, after having trouble breathing. He still has trouble with his breathing, but is fully conscious. The doctors are satisfied with the progress, but they are still looking for the cause to the respiratory issues and notably his high temperature. They hope to be able to control the temperature.
Throughout the day, tefillos were held in yeshivos and schools across Eretz Yisrael, on behalf of Harav Steinman, shlita.
A large atzeres will be held Sunday night in the Lederman shul in Bnei Brak, to by led by Hagaon Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlita.
Klal Yisrael is urged to continue to daven and increase limmud haTorah for the refuah sheleimah of Harav Aharon Yehudah Leib ben Gittel Faiga, b’soch she’ar cholei Yisrael.
