Chacham Ovadia is Weak but Continues to Spread Torah


Despite feeling weak during the past week, Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita on motzei shabbos gave his weekly shiur Torah. Gabbaim to the gadol hador explained R’ Yosef had a flu type illness and was having difficulty maintaining his stringent daily Torah study schedule as a result.

Nevertheless, the rav did give his weekly motzei shabbos shiur and is signaling this week’s planned convening of the party’s Moetzas Gedolei Yisrael to set the party’s election lineup will take place as scheduled.
