The Toldos Avrohom Yitzchok felt unwell on Shabbos at the time of seudah shlishis and was taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Yerushalayim.
Preparations for seudah shlishis, which were to be part of sheva brachos for his granddaughter in the Meah Shearim neighborhood of Yerushalayim, were underway when the Rebbe felt ill. Paramedics arrived at his home and then took him to the hospital, where he was placed under the care of physicians in the cardiac department.
The Rebbe has experienced recent weakness since he had a cardiac incident two months ago in New York, where he underwent a catheterization.
Friday night, the Rebbe led his regular tish at his bais medrash in Yerushalayim, with the participation of hundreds.
All are asked to daven for Rav Shmuel Yaakov ben Yenta.
