Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz, 83, is hospitalized in serious condition at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, and on Tuesday morning his situation deteriorated.
Rabbi Steinsaltz is suffering from a lung infection, and is unconscious and on a respirator.
“My father is fighting a very serious incidence of lung infection (which is not connected to coronavirus), and suffered a deterioration this evening,” his son Menachem Even-Israel wrote. “Please remember him in your thoughts and mention him in your prayers.”
“May we see him return to full health, with G-d’s help. Please pray and say a chapter of Psalms for my father, Rabbi Adin, the son of Rivka Leah.”
On Tuesday evening, a prayer gathering for Rabbi Steinsaltz will be held at the Western Wall and broadcast via Zoom. Read more at Arutz-7
