Please Pray for Rav Elyashiv Shlit"a

Rav Elyashiv is in critical condition at Sha'arei Tzedek Hospital, and needs Hashem's mercy.

Rav Amar said, "Kelal Yisrael needs him, and he protects the entire generation.  I call on all those praying to accept upon themselves to say Chapter 102 of Tehilim for his complete recovery."

From YWN:
With the news arriving from Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center that the condition of Maran Hagon Rav Elyashiv has deteriorated, and is R”L in critical condition, Hagon Rav Aron Leib Shteinman has sent out the following urgent message to the heads of Yeshivos:

“Stop the Seder Halimud, and be Mispallel for the Posek HaDor”.

As of this posting (2:30PM EST), the blood pressure of Rav Elyashiv has been dropping, and he is having severe difficulty breathing, due to the fluid in his lungs.

Please be Mispallel for Yosef Sholom ben Chaya Musha.
If we should stop even Torah learning, how much more so should we stop all the other Shtuyot we might be doing.  Let's storm the heavens.

This is the 1st time I have heard such an instruction to stop seder limmud. R.Chaim Zimmerman wrote that when G-d wants to bring a mapoloh on the Jewish People, He brings about a reduction or even ceasing of their prophylactic Torah study. At this time, on the possible brink of WWIII, that the Torah seder should be stopped for the sake of a 103 year old sick man is incomprehensible and ominous.If ever there was a time for Amolek to lash out, it is now ch"v.

Since when does everyone cease learning Torah? I don't understand this statement either.

The Avodah email list discussed this post with a similar question, and came up with some answers.
