Family members of Hagaon Harav Yaakov Edesltein, shlita, Rav of Ramat Hasharon, asked for increased tefillos after the Rav was hospitalized in a serious condition Monday afternoon (Israeli time).

The Rav, who underwent a complex operation last Purim, was in Netanya and rushed to Laniado Hospital in serious condition. The doctors were able to stabilize him and the Rav is now conscious, but still in serious condition.

The Rav’s brother, Hagaon Harav Gershon Edelstein, shlita, called on all yeshivos to hold tefillos and sidrei limmud on  behalf of Harav Yaakov.

Klal Yisrael is urged to continue to daven and increase limud haTorah for the refuah sheleimah of Harav Yaakov ben Miriam, b’soch she’ar cholei Yisrael.
