Klausenberger - Sanz Rebbe looses consciousness during Yom Kippur Davening

The Rebbe of Sanz, a Chassidic dynasty, fainted during davening on the night of Yom Kippur, causing great anxiety among his followers.

Shortly before midnight Friday, his assistants noticed that he had lost consciousness and after he received initial care on the spot, he was evacuated on foot to the hospital.

His followers remained in the beit midrash all night, to say Tehillim for his recovery.

After receiving an IV drip during the night. He was released from hospital and back on his feet by morning, and continued to fast, leading the davening 

Followers of the rebbe estimate that the fainting was caused by the fact that the rebbe slept very little during the “Days of Awe” between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.
