Rabbi Mordechai Eliyah

(IsraelNN.com) Former Sephardic Chief Rabbi of the State of Israel Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu was rushed to Shaarei Tzedek hospital late Friday night with a heart attack. The Rabbi underwent a 6-hour surgery which began with a bypass and included an additional procedure. Doctors say the surgery was successful.

After midnight Friday, the Rabbi was feeling bad and having difficulty breathing. His wife summoned a neighbor who is a nurse to his home in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood of Jerusalem. An ambulance was called and the Rabbi was taken to the hospital at about 2 a.m.

According to one report, Rabbi Eliyahu also is suffering from fluids in his lungs.
