The Belzer Rebbe Shlita on Wednesday afternoon, received an invitation to attend the Siyum HaShas being headed in Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita in Jerusalem’s Teddy Stadium.

Shas leader Deputy Prime Minister/Minister of the Interior Eli Yishai arrived at the rebbe’s vacation location in Telshe Stone to personally deliver the invitation from Chacham Ovadia, asking him to honor the primarily Sephardi siyum with his presence.

Reports indicate that the rebbe told R’ Yishai that he will do his utmost to participate.

The two continued to speak for about 40 minutes addressing issues of current significance. Kikar Shabbat reports the conversation included present coalition realities.

The rebbe reportedly gave Yishai a chizuk towards continued steadfastness in his dealings with efforts to draft avreichim, praising his actions to protect the yeshiva velt, giving him the bracha לך בכוחך זה והמשך להצליח.

The rebbe asked R’ Yishai to personally thank Chacham Ovadia for the invitation on his behalf.

  1. If the Belzer rebbe, shlita, can attend a siyum organized by Chacham Ovadia, kal vachomer, the Vishnitzer rebbe, should show the same atitude and participate in the program with Rav Lau, shlita. We need more achdus among gadolei yisroel, not more of the same petty bickering we grown tired of and which prevents the coming of moishiach.

  2. Gadolhadorah, pls refrain from claiming to have the right to give mussar to the visnitz monsey rebbe…I do believe his knowledge in Torah and his immense Yiras Shomayim by far overrides what we in the population have achieved. His has a far wider minded then we might believe

  3. Gadolhadorah,

    Are u suggesting in your kal vhomer that sefaradis are the equivalent to the dati leumi and belz to the vishnitz?

    I think you have it all around. Your post stinks pure ignorance. Vishnitz has its derech and sefaradis are kedoshim…

  4. I happen to admire #1’s posting.
    my_opinion…. why do you have such a low self esteem that you can’t wonder or have curiosity. If you don’t know who someone is dont tell him that someone else has more torah and yiras shemayim than another. This isn’t a contest.
