The entire Torah (Orthodox Jewish) world is anxiously watching and monitoring Rav Shteinman’s health situation. The 103 year old Chareidi leader from Bnei Brak in Israel experienced a serious and severe deterioration in his health yesterday, Wednesday, November 22.
Rav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman is considered by the majority of Chareidi Jewry to be the Gadol Hador, the greatest man in the generation. Rav Shteinman is greatly revered by his followers and his recent health issue caused great concern among them.
Thankfully, on Thursday morning, November 23, Rav Shteinman’s doctor reported that the great sage had a significant improvement and can can be considered in stable condition, yet still serious.
Many Rabbis in Israel have called upon the Jewish people to take time and pray for the speedy recovery of Rav Shteinman. Chief among them is Rav Chaim Kanievsky, widely considered the Gadol Hador second only to Rav Shteinman.
