All are asked to daven for a refuah sheleimah for Rav Chaim Dov Keller, rosh yeshiva of Telshe Yeshiva in Chicago, who is in need of rachamei Shomayim.
Rav Keller was rushed to the hospital this morning with a fever and was tested for COVID-19/coronavirus. The test results confirmed that he has coronavirus.
Rav Keller is in critical condition and is now on a respirator/ventilator.
The physicians overseeing his care are considering giving the rosh yeshiva the drugs that have been approved this week to treat the virus.
Rav Keller was born in New York City and subsequently attended the Telshe Yeshiva after it was established in Cleveland, Ohio by Rav Chaim Mordechai Katz and Rav Eliyahu Meir Bloch. Rav Keller became a close talmid of Rav Bloch. Rav Keller later married a daughter of Rav Leizer Levin zt”l, longtime rov of Detroit. Together with his brother-in-law, Rav Avrohom Chaim Levin, Rav Keller was hand-picked by the leadership of Telshe Yeshiva in Cleveland to oversee the establishment of a similar yeshiva in Chicago in 1960.
One of the senior roshei yeshiva of North America, Rav Keller has for years served as a member of the Nesius of Agudas Yisroel of America.
All are asked to daven for the complete recovery of Rav Chaim Dov ben Kreindel.
