The leading posek (decisor of halakha, Orthodox Jewish law) for hasidim worldwide, Rabbi Shmuel HaLevi Wosner, is reportedly in critical condition in Mayanei HaYeshua Hospital in Bnei Bak.
The 101-year-old rabbi has been hospitalized for three weeks with pneumonia that has not responded to treatment and has been on a ventilator. Some reports hint that Wosner’s organs may be shutting down.
People are asked to pray for Shmuel ben Rochel.
