Update on Rivka Bat Yael
Noticeable improvement has been recorded over the last few days in the condition of four-year-old Rivka Razel, the daughter of singer Yonatan Razel, who suffered serious injuries when she fell from the roof of the family's Jerusalem home on the eve of Independence Day. She has been taken off life support and moved to the rehabilitation department.
Arutz Sheva has learned that Rivka received a blessing from Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu of blessed memory. One of his associates said the rabbi loved Razel's song "Vehi Sheamda" and his followers would sing it to him at his home. When the tragedy occured, the rabbi said to take Rivka's clothes and perform the caparot ritual that usually precedes Yom Kippur. Her situation has improved since them.
People are still asked to pray for Rivka bat Yael.
