I wish him a refuah shelema.

Refua shleima!

This is proof of the power and holiness of hasadik Rav Amnon Yischak Shlita. The world will soon see his greatness and all who attack him will fall.

I don't always agree with him, but I do wish him a refuah shelaimah all the same.


I also don't always agree with him, but I do wish him a refuah shelaimah all the same.
However, he really should have gone to hospital the moment he felt numbness in his hand.
I am not a doctor, but I understand that that is one of the classic symptoms of a stroke.


he is doing pretty good for a 92 year old , strong as a rock . but he is overdoing it , he should start taking easy and slow down . he might live till 100 , easily ,but he needs to be treated for his heart condition .
he might be stubborn, those tough massive
guys don't listen to doctors . i hope he is smarter than those chassidim who think hashem will heal them .
amazing how he still have all his head on for a man of his age. he will make it.


Chasid Shoteh!

refuah shleima

The Rabbi has guts. I don't always agree with his views but one thing we can all learn is that Rav Ovadia says it the way he sees it without apology.


i dont wish him harm but being old and/or sick doesnt make a hateful jerk any less so.


I wish him well but to not go to hospital with an illness of this nature on Shabbat is in fact, a desecration of the Sabbath.

Refusing to go to hospital when medically and Halachically necessary shows how far they have removed themselves from Judaism.

It would seem so. He just cursed him after all. I don't know what to do. I'm afraid to say anything against either side! I wonder if the all powerful and holy of ztadik Rav Amnon Yischak Shlita will take public credit. Will R Yosef now retract and apologize to avoid further curses.

(The truth is I shouldn't make fun, If I'm not willing to make fun of my own Rebbaim. Oh well no_one is perfect. I do hear the point though.)

PS. Reb Yaakov ben-zonah, can you do m a favor and post your comment on VIN as well?


It is possible that, for certain tzadikim of a certain level, not rushing to the hospital for the purpose of protecting Shabbat in fact protected them from worse things. That is, had he rushed himself and made himself more nervous, it's very easy to aggravate the stroke. By calmly telling himself things would be okay, relying on H" and kavod Shabbat, he reduced the swelling and injury.

Disclaimer; this is only for very high tzadikim! To the rest of us, go to a hospital.
