Rabbi Ovadia Yosef is scheduled to undergo critical and complicated surgery Monday morning, doctors at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital said Sunday night.

Earlier in the day, doctors put Rav Ovadia back on a breathing machine after his condition worsened following his breathing on his own for a period of time.

The spiritual head of the Shas religious party and former Chief Sephardi Rabbi of Israel is suffering from an infection.

His personal physician, Prof. Dan  Gilon said that the 93-tear-old rabbi had been breathing on his own lately until Saturday night, when we was placed back on a breathing machine again.
