Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Monsey Rushed to Hospital

The Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Monsey, Rav Mordechai Hager, was hospitalized today at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. The 92-year-old admor, who leads his chassidus in Kaser Village in Monsey, NY, had been feeling unwell. He was reportedly suffering from dehydration and other ailments.
On Rosh Hashanah, the Rebbe participated in the tefillos with his Chassidim and joined them for a neilas hachag yesterday.
This morning, he felt extremely weak and was taken to Mount Sinai, where a series of tests are being conducted and he is receiving medical treatment.
The Rebbe has battled various ailments over the last few years.
All are asked to daven for a refuah sheleimah for Rav Mordechai ben Margolia.
Meanwhile, the Rebbe’s great-grandson, Reb Sruly Hager, is still in serious condition from injuries sustained in a car accident last week.

If the US attacks in Syria continue, there are likely to be civilian casualties, because ISIS will embed its fighters among civilians and the many hostages it has taken. When that happens, American and Arab rockets will kill some civilians. It will be interesting to compare the world’s reaction to those civilian deaths with its reaction to deaths caused by Israeli rockets hitting human shields deliberately employed by Hamas. If the past is any predictor of the future, the ratio of civilian to terrorist deaths may be considerably higher in the American lead air attacks than it was in the Israeli air attacks. In past wars, such as those in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and the former Yugoslavia, the ratio of civilian to combatant deaths was far higher than the ratio brought about by Israeli rockets firing into Gaza where human shields are Hamas’s tactic of choice.
