NOTE: THIS POSTING WILL PROBABLY BE UPDATED FROM TIME TO TIME - SO PLEASE WATCH THIS SPACE!
1. The Rebbe Shita - There have been a few small signs of improvement today, B"H. But the Rebbe Shlita still needs Rachamei Shamayim [Heavenly mercy], and our tefillos [prayers]. Tonight, Thursday night, everyone who can join in is asked to come to the Kosel [Western Wall] in Yerushalyim at 9:15 for Kriyas Tehillim (the Book of Psalms in its entirety), and tefillos for the Rebbe's health. Buses will be coming in from Bnei Brak and elsewhere. Every person counts!
If you are too far away, or for other reasons unable to attend, please join us from wherever you are at that time, and daven for the Rebbe's refuah shleimah [full recovery].
Please continue to daven for [HaRav] YISRAEL DAN ben RIVKA ZLATA, for a Refua Shelaima b'Karov - a full and speedy recovery! May we all have better Besoros [news] - very soon!
2. The Modzitz website is back, with updates on the Rebbe Shlita's condition [see above] and an announcement about the passing of its Webmaster, R. Hershel Taub z"l, as well as the passing of his brother, R. Yitzchak Taub z"l. Be sure to check it [and here] frequently for probably the only accurate updates of the Rebbe Shlita's condition.
3. The Rebbe Shita remains in intensive care in Ichilov Hospital, Tel-Aviv. The Chassidim and others have been davening [praying] for his full recovery at locations throughout Israel, including the Rebbe's Beis Medrash in Bnei Brak; the Kotel [Western Wall], Shtibel [Shul], and Har HaZeisim [Mount of Olives, where the Rebbe's father and grandfather are buried], all in Yerushalayim; and at the gravesite of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai in Meron; as well as in the Modzitz Shtibel in Flatbush, New York, USA [more above (1)].
