Shomrei Emunim Rebbe woke up


The Rebbe of Chassidut SHOMREI EMUNIM, Rabbi Avraham Chaim Roth, fainted in his home yesterday. He was taken to hospital and his group members started immediate prayers for a Refuah Shlemah (complete recovery). Today the Rebbe woke up in hospital and was surprised seeing doctors and nurses around him, as he wasn't aware of his breakdown. Afterwards he washed his hands, put on Tefillin and spoke for twenty minutes with his grandson Rabbi Aharon Geldzaehler.

All Shomrei Emunim members are asked to continue praying for the health of their Rebbe but it was also announced that the Rebbe is not in any dangerous condition anymore.

In the past I participated a few times in the Tish of the Shomrei Emunim Rebbe at his synagogue in Mea Shearim Street in Jerusalem. An almost tiny place with a Ezrat Nashim (women's side) which is not easy to find. 

Rebbe Avraham Chaim Roth has the custom of starting his Erev Shabbat Tish rather late. The Tish itself goes on for a few hours. Plenty of Haredim come to participate and once I heard that the Rebbe used to be quite friendly with the Baba Sali. 

The women's side of the synagogue is even smaller than the men's section downstairs. When I was there last, quite an amount of women was hanging all over the wooden Mechitzah and I thought that everything would just collapse and we end up downstairs.:-)
