Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef was discharged from Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem on Thursday afternoon after spending five days in the cardiology department to reassess his medications and give treatment for mild cardiac insufficiency.

The rabbi, who is due to turn 93 in a few days, was previously in Hadassah to undergo surgery on his back, following a fall that caused severe pain. Hadassah said he is due to return to the hospital next week for tests.
