The 81 year old renowned halachic authority went to see his personal doctor this morning complaining of chest pains, according to Yanky Meyer of Misaskim, who spoke with VIN News from the hospital.

“He was rushed to Maimonides and when he was taken into the cardiac catheterization lab, they had to put him on a respirator,” Meyer told VIN News.

Meyer said that doctors have been performing emergency procedures for over two hours in an effort to treat Rabbi Roth without having to perform open heart surgery.

The public is asked to daven for Yechezkel ben Yehudis.

What does it matter if he is a tzadik or not? you should daven for every yiddishe neshuma when they are sick. Whether he is a tzadik or not, is not for us to define, i can personally tell you he wronged me very badly with a psak years ago , and 3 years later he called me to ask mechila ( was very big of him, i have to admit) and i said no, i was very hurt by what he did for me.

Having said that i still daven for him and ask hashem for his speedy recovery.

Are you better than the Abishter? Who are you to refuse mechilah to a talmud chacham, especially since he admitted the error and by your own admission was "big" enough to request it . Do you not ask the Abishter for mechilah and are always given it for your averahs? Go quickly to the Rav and tell him you are mochel him. Who knows what is taking place in shemayim right now, you may hold the key to the Rav's refuah. Go quickly!

no I am NOT better or I would forgive him by now, sadly I am a just a man with "Flesh and blood" and I am NOT big enough to forgive like hashem does and don't have it in my heart to forgive him for what he did to me, but may hashem grant him a Refuah Shleima as he is overall a decent man, just for me personally he doesn't do it

Dear ChareidiMan.............If you want Hashem to forgive you, then you have to be a FORGIVER as well. What do you mean you're just a man with flesh and blood? Aren't we all that? Even Rabbi Roth.... So, being said that, Rabbi Roth can make a mistake too. And to call you to ask for forgivness??? Wow, that's putting him way "up" there. I beg you to tell Rabbi Roth that you forgive him NOW before it's too lateCh'V. In the zchis, may Hashem forgive you as well. I'm sure you'll sleep better at night after you tell him you forgive him. Hatzlocha Rabba.
