Rabbi Elyashiv’s Condition Improves, But is Still Critical

Monday, February 20th, 2012

Shaare Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem announced on Sunday that there has been a significant improvement in Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv’s condition, and that he has regained consciousness after two weeks.

Doctors reported that they began lifting the Lithunian Orthodox sage out of artificial anesthetization over the weekend, and were satisfied with his response. Elyashiv, who turns 102 next month, has opened his eyes and is alert, is gesturing with his hands, and is reported to have gotten out of bed and sit in a chair.

The hospital clarified that although the Rabbi is conscious and responsive, he is still in critical condition. He is still breathing with the assistance of an artificial respiration machine, and is therefore still unable to speak.

“The condition of the Rabbi is improving, but it is still defined as serious. This coming week is very significant in determining whether the Rabbi be himself again or not. Members of the family ask that people to continue to pray,” said a spokesman for the Rabbi.

The public is asked to pray for the recovery of Harav Yosef Shalom ben Chaya Mousha.

Round-The-Clock Prayers For Rav Elyashiv

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

JERUSALEM – Thousands gathered at Shaare Tzedek Medical Center, the Kotel and yeshivot across Israel Tuesday praying for Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv – Yosef Shalom ben Chaya Mousha – the 101-year-old leading contemporary authority on Jewish law who was in a medically induced coma after suffering kidney and lung failure.

Prayers were also being said in yeshivot and synagogues in New York and other cities around the world.

Several haredi Knesset members and close relatives visited Rav Elyashiv on Tuesday. Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat arrived in the afternoon. Israeli president Shimon Peres said “The entire nation is concerned about the condition of the leader of the Torah world.”

According to the Israeli Kikar Shabbat website, doctors were guardedly optimistic late Tuesday as Rav Elyashiv’s condition showed signs of improvement; his system was stabilizing and there reportedly was a resumption of kidney function.

Rav Elyashiv has been in and out of the hospital several times during the past few months. Despite his tenuous health, he continued to return to his modest apartment in Meah Shearim and maintained a fairly full daily schedule. As the titular head of the haredi Degel HaTorah political faction in the Knesset, he was also briefed on major developments affecting the yeshiva world.
