Prayer Request
Former Fetus

Posted on 02/12/2012 8:12:04 PM PST by Former Fetus

I have received an email from Binyamin L. Jolkovsky, Editor in Chief of Jewish World Review. He's requesting prayers for Yisroel ben Chana Tzirel, a rabbinic mentor of his. This is someone who has been more like a father to him, and is considered to be among the most prominent Orthodox rabbis in America. He was rushed to the hospital this morning and had emergency surgery.

In the words of Mr. Jolkowsky, every prayer is precious to the Almighty. The power of prayer is often spoken of. But those of us who truly believe in it, act on it.

Thanks!

I have an ap on my Iphone/Ipad that enables one to send prayers that people receive at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. They then write them or print them out and put them in the Wall.

Along with my prayers, I will strive to do that tonight for this Rabbi when I get home.

Job 12:10 ~ In his hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

Numbers 23:19 ~ God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

Exodus 15:26 ~ For I am the Lord that healeth thee.

May we soon learn that the Rabbi has been fully restored to health, to the Glory of God. Amen and Amen ...

This is Rav Yisroel Belsky, the head of the Jewish religious school Yeshiva Torah Vodaas and renowned expert on Jewish law.

Thanks! I googled both names and found out that Yisroel ben Chana Tzirel is his name for Tehillim. I’m sorry, as a Christian I do not understand. Would you be so kind as to explain to me the reason for having 2 names? Is one of the names a title more than a “name”?

Jews traditionally did not have surnames. One was known by a given name, followed by “son of”/”daughter of” the father’s given name.

For certain purposes, such as praying for health, one is known as son/daughter of mother’s given name.

Rav Yisroel Belsky, whose father is Berel, would be called to read the Torah as “Yisroel ben Berel”. In praying for his health, his mother’s name, Chana Tzirel, is used. Thus “Yisroel ben Chana Tzirel”.

The term Jew, incidentally, is not an official designation. One is known as a ben/bat (son/daughter) of Israel.

Thanks, that’s very interesting. Does it mean that Belsky is his regular surname, for non-religious business?

I am so happy for the family and Rabbi Tzirel. May God continue to bless him with health and recovery. I can only imagine that the family and friends feel like a weight has been lifted off their shoulders. Thank you for the update, FF.

Good evening my friends. This morning I was informed that there appeared to have been a setback in the recovery of Rabbi Yisroel ben Chana Tzirel. A few minutes ago I got yet another email informing me that he is now in critical condition. So, once more time I’m appealing to the FR prayer warriors to intercede for the health of the Rabbi. Thanks and God bless y’all.

Update On Condition Of HaRav Yisroel Belsky, Shlita

[2:00PM EST] (Thursday, February 23rd, 2012)

Following an urgent request for Tehillim Wednesday afternoon, YWN has been informed that the situation by the Rosh Hayeshiva overnight was stable. His health condition remains critical and people should continue being Mispallel for Yisroel ben Chana Tzirel.

The talmidim of the Yeshiva in Eretz Yisroel are planning to gather together Friday morning Rosh Chodesh Adar at 9:15am at the Kosel HaMaaravi to say [Psalms] for a refuah for the Rosh Hayeshiva. Please notify any of your family in Eretz Yisroel who could possibly join them. The S’gan Menahel, Rav Efraim Glassman is in Eretz Yisroel at this time and will be there [...] to organize the Kinnus.

Rabbi Belsky, who is the Rosh Yeshiva of Torah Vodaath in Flatbush, and one of the major Poskim in America, was rushed to the hospital by Hatzolah two weeks ago, after first suffering from a ruptured esophagus, and a collapsed lung. He also went into cardiac arrest while in the hospital, and has since undergone a few procedures.

This may be the last time I bother y'all. I understand that it is a practice in judaism to add an additional name to those nearing death. I don't understand the purpose, probably jjotto could explain it for us. The point is, I've got an email asking for prayers for CHAIM Yisroel ben Chanah Tzirel. May the Lord's will be done.

BTW, doesn't CHAIM mean "life"?

One thing I DO know is that Chaim means life. It also has a connection to the number 18, but can’t remember. Maybe the symbol in Hebrew is the same?

Prayers will continue .. as you say, Lord’s will be done.
