PHOTO: Upon learning of the success of Rav Elyashiv’s surgery early this morning, Bachurim from the Ponovez Yeshivah took to the streets in dance and song, thanking Hasehem. The Bachurim sang ‘Chasdei Hasehm…’ and ‘Ki Orech Yamim..’ for close to an hour.
Rav Elyashiv, who is around 100 years old, underwent a heart surgery yesterday evening to correct an artery leading to his heart.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Daniel Clair, a renowned vascular surgeon from Cleveland, OH, who was flown to Eretz Yisroel for the surgery. Photo credit: Shmuli Hartstien.
