Amid Death Threats, Security Detail For Rishon L’Tzion Rav Yosef


Amid death threats from Gaza-based terrorists against Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Yosef Shlita, a security detail has been assigned to the rabbi. This was already visible on Sunday night the eve of 27 Shevat, when the rabbi attended a simcha in Hadera, accompanied by security personnel.

YWN-ISRAEL last week published the photos of the ‘hit list’ advertised by Gazan-based terrorists. Israel is taking the threats quite seriously and security personnel are being assigned where necessary.

  1. Does this “security detail” include any members of the IDF who the Rav has consistently disparaged and with respct to whom he has urged his followers not to enlist or participate? Since he thinks so little of the security forces, why are thy wasting scarce resources to protect him since he is a great beleiver that torah learning alone provides more than adequate security for EY.
