The condition of Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv is deteriorating as doctors struggle to keep him alive.
Elyashiv, who had been in critical but stable condition since last week, took a turn for the worst after undergoing procedures Sunday to remove mechanical breathing devices.

The 101-year-old Torah sage and Ultra-Orthodox community leader is being cared for at Jerusalem’s Sha’arei Tzedek Medical Center.
