On Wednesday, the first day of Chol Hamoed Sukkos, the annual Kabolas Pnei Rabbo was held with Jerusalem Chief Rabbi Aryeh Stern Shlita in Beit HaRav Kook.
The event was held annually in the same room in which HaGaon HaRav Avraham Yitzchak HaKohen Kook ZT”L would receive the public as mora d’asra of Yerushalayim and Eretz Yisrael.
In addition to the many who came to wish the rav Yomtov greetings and receive his good wishes were MK Moti Yogev, Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Yitzchak Pindrus, Secretary of the Vaad Ruchniyus of Yated Neeman Rabbi Yehuda Yavrov, Jerusalem Councilmen Moshe Leon, Aryeh King, and Yonatan Branski, with the latter being a contender for the Bayit Yehudi leadership slot. Head of the Druse community forum Eyal Assad was also present, requesting from the rav to prevent immodest parades in the holy city.
