Sefardi haredi leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef's condition has reportedly dangerously deteriorated.
Yosef – a former Sefardi chief rabbi of Israel and the spiritual head and founder of the Sefardi haredi Shas political party – is in a medically-induced coma and on life support at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.
A number of Yosef's organs have reportedly gone into failure, and a drug had to be administered to raise the rabbi's blood pressure to a safe level.
The 93-year-old rabbi had a cardiac pacemaker inserted two days ago.
People are asked to pray for Ovadia Haim Yosef ben Giorgia.
