  1. Strange because Theyeshivaworld.com is not making it nearly as serious as TLS is.

    Anything at his age bla’h is serious, just wondering….

  2. let us daven that he have a refuah shleima
    May all of Klal yisroel start doing teshuva NOW-before tragedy strikes again C”V-& THEN mashiach will come b’karov

  3. For those who don’t understand the implications of the news:

    Rabbi Elyashiv is the foremost Rabbi in Orthodox Judaism in the world today. Orthodox Judaism believes that the merit of the greatest Rabbis protect the world and the generation. Therefore, a loss of the gretest Rabbi in the world is a tremendous loss, felt by every Orthodox Jew on the face of the planet.

    Approximately 10 years ago, the then-greatest Rabbi in the world, Rabbi Shach, died at 103 years of age. Approximately 500,000 people came to his funeral in Bnei Braq, Israel. (Virtually all of Orthodox Jewry in Israel at the time)

    Rabbi Elyashiv is now 101 years old, and fighting for his life. His situation has drastically taken a turn for the worse in the past two hours. Tens of thousands of Orthodox Jews all over Israel and the world are stopping their studies and their jobs, and praying for the continued health and life of Rabbi Elyashiv. Because we need our Rabbis.

    (A side note: In late 1939 and early 1940, the world’s three greatest Orthodox Rabbis died within a few months of each other, as World War 2 and the Holocaust were beginning. I am referring to Rabbis Leibowitz, Shkop, and Grodzinski.)

  4. Yaakov- please stop writing leaving Hashem no choice. yes you should take lessons and wake up calls but dont make cheshboynos for hashem!!!!!

  5. Update on HaGaon HaRav Elyashiv Shlita (4:45PM IL)

    Yidden around the world are continuing to be mispallel for Maran Posek HaDor HaGaon HaRav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv Shlita, whose condition remains very serious/stable. The rav is in a 10th floor cardiac intensive care unit in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim, on a respirator.

    The latest report cites the rav is in need of “Rachmei Shomayim Me’Rubim”. The rav’s medical team emphasizes the importance of the continued tefilos for the recovery of Rav Yosef Sholom ben Chaya Musha b’soch kol cholei am yisrael.

    On Thursday night at 11:00pm, hundreds of shuls in Eretz Yisrael and around the world will open their doors to mispallalim on behalf of the posek hador, and at 11:55pm, chatzos, they will begin reciting the 13 Midos HaRachamim. The central tefilla will be held at the Kosel. There are also tefilos scheduled in the Ma’aras HaMachpela in Hebron at 11:30pm.

    Organizers also remind us that during the Second Lebanon War, Rav Elyashiv called for tefilos at the same time, explaining that even though the davening is taking place in different shuls and countries, the koach combines since the focus and time are the same.

    In addition, at the same time, tefilos will also be held at the Kever of the HaLeshem on Har HaZeisim, the rav’s grandfather ZY”A.
