Maran Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman has been feeling unwell and suffering from fever and weakness in recent days.
The senior rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Orchos Torah and Yeshiva Gaon Yaakov in Bnei Brak was taken today to Mayanei Hayeshua Medical Center, where he is undergoing tests. He remains under the close watch of a team of physicians.
Medical examinations were performed due to fears of pneumonia, and the rosh yeshiva was started on a regimen of antibiotic treatment.
Rav Shteinman was taken to Mayanei Hayeshuah in his own car. No ambulance was utilized.
It has not been decided when he will be released to his home or what the ongoing medical treatment will entail.
It is interesting to note that in recent days, glass windows were installed on the porch of Rav Shteinman’s home to allow him to light the menorah there without having to be exposed to the elements, such as chilly weather, outside.
All are asked to daven for Rav Aharon Yehudah Leib ben Gittel Faiga.
