World Jewish Congress mourns passing of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 12 ottobre 2013

The World Jewish Congress mourns the loss of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the former Sephardic chief rabbi of Israel and a sage of his generation, and expressed its condolences to Israeli and world Jewry. World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder stated the following: “Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, a scholar of great renown and a thoughtful and tolerant religious judge, left a lasting mark on Israel and world Jewry. As the founder of the Shas Party, he energized Israel’s Sephardic community, securing for it rights and respect and leading it to political prominence. His rabbinical ruling enabled the rescue of Ethiopian Jewry.”A man of strong opinions who was not afraid of clashing with others, Rabbi Yosef engaged in many ideological battles. But few shaped the modern state of Israel as much as he did, which is why more than half a million attended his funeral.
