Interesting Recent Links - Kippur 5774

Regarding Rav Ovadia Yosef Shlit"a's condition, before the holiday, it wasn't clear if he would be released from the hospital before Rosh Hashana or not, but it was decided not to do so. Over the holiday, there was a slight improvement in his condition and he had a private Minyan in the hospital room. On Monday, it was reported that he was B"H released from the hospital. Please continue to pray for Rav Ovadia Yosef ben Gorgia.

Meanwhile, Rav Shteinman Shlit"a didn't feel well during Rosh Hashana, but has improved. Rav Galinsky Shlit"a was taken to the hospital over Rosh Hashana. The Vizhnitzer Rebbe Shlit"a survived a multi-car crash on the way to Meiron.

Regarding the Menorah. Could be that this medalion was from the Second Temple era and the Menorah was not the original because that was hidden away somewhere under the original Beit HaMikdash with the other keilim. The original was molded from one piece of gold. The second Beit HaMikdash might have had all new keilim and thus, the menorah was built rounded rather than angular. Sure, that the Rambam and the Rebbe were correct.
