Rabbi Aharon Leib Shteinman, the spiritual leader of the Ashkenazi, non-hassidic haredi community was hospitalized on Sunday night in the Mayanei Hayeshua Hospital in Bnei Brak following a lung infection.

On Monday morning, doctors at the hospital said that Shteinman, 104 years old, was now in recovery although he has not yet been discharged. The rabbi was reportedly in the intensive care unit in order to monitor him closely, but is conscious, breathing on his own and fully communicative.
