The doyen of Rabbinical Sages, 90-year-old Rabbi Yehezkel Abramsky, former Av Beit Din of London, was hospitalized here this weekend with heart trouble. Informed sources said he was not seriously stricken and they hoped he would make a full recovery. Since his retirement from London in 1950 Rabbi Abramsky has lived in Jerusalem, working on his monumental “Hazon Yehezkel” commentary on the Tosephta. He also holds weekly lectures at the Slabodka Yeshiva in Bnei Brak.
