Rabbi Yakov Adas, a Jerusalem Kabbalist, was hospitalized on Friday afternoon at Sha’ari Tzedek hospital, after collapsing, according to a report on Hadarei Hadarim.

The Rabbi has been fasting and praying all week long, ever since learning about the kidnapped boys, Eyal Yifrach, Gil-ad Shaar and Naftali Frankel.

The Rabbi was suffering from dehydration. His condition is now stable.

  1. G-D please bless Rabbi Yukon Adas.

  2. Sandra Berenstein says:

    May Rabbi Yakov Adas be blessed with a refuah shelaimah. I am sorry that the boys did not come home sooner. may R' Adas' efforts to personally take something on help bring our boys home.

  3. Kenneth Schreier says:

    I applaud his suffering for his people but Hashem requires that you preserve your health in order to do His will here on earth. He should be drinking water and maintain necessary nutrients so he not die.
    Such dedication is however to be praised. May he have a speedy recovery! Amen

  4. Kenneth Schreier says:

    You deplore? Who are you to deplore someone who believes that denying yourself of earthy pleasures and humbling yourself in repentance before the Almighty will allow your prayers to be earnestly heard and answered favorably? At least he cares enough about his fellow human beings to put himself through this hardship. Better than do nothing as most people do.

  5. Jeff Eyges says:

    Kenneth Schreier "Who are you to deplore someone who believes that denying yourself of earthy pleasures and humbling yourself in repentance before the Almighty will allow your prayers to be earnestly heard and answered favorably?"

    I have every right to deplore a symptom of a harmful, repressive belief system that has, in various forms, brought untold suffering to millions.

    And meanwhile, he later said, while at the hospital, that the boys were kidnapped because Shimon Peres prayed at the Vatican, an "impure" place. He's a seriously deranged man.

    "Better than do nothing as most people do."

    The efforts of the IDF are far more useful than this lunatic's caterwauling.

  6. Kenneth Schreier says:

    Jeff Eyges : I have a functioning brain stem just like you. He has the right to pray as he wishes. It should not bother you whether somebody believes in a G-d who will act based on sincere thoughts or actions they believe will bring about the successful resolution of a life threatening situation.
    Action & Prayer are both commendable in a humane society. i only see your position being valid in a universe in which there is no G-d! I believe in G-d and I am not insane or uneducated, you evidently do not but that is your right just as we have the right to believe there is one.

  7. Edwin Somori says:

    Hi Jeff, Hmmmm! Point of correction – Calling on the God of the Universe (& not punishing oneself for some universal or cosmic power or banker – ) He is the one who created everything both seen & unseen in the universe, He has been the reason behind the continuous existence of the Jews – even right in the midst of their ravenous neighbors who would have rather have them annihilated.
    Wisdom.

  8. God heal him as You Are His Healer.

  9. Edwin Somori says:

    But for age, every great name in the bible, some even longer day. So if the Rabbi is following the path of his great predecessors of the bible, then he's right on track.
    Nevertheless, as the man get older, his organs get weaker and coupled with the pollution around us today incured by industrialization, mostly in the part of the so called "TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT." is so much having it's toll on us that we can no longer do the things that our forefathers did with their age/s in there days today without mechanical or the use of Electronics.
    Notwithstanding though, a lot of people in Africa today have taking fasting as a life style, even those not in such priestly office– owing to the helplessness induced on them by curuption of the people in power. Well just saying that the Rabbi is right on course.
