The Sanz-Klausenberg Rebbe USA Shlita is visiting in Eretz Yisrael. The rebbe on Monday evening 13 Elul 5773 visited Har Nof to pay a visit to Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita.
The rebbe was greeted with warmth by the Gadol Hador. The two spent a few minutes exchanging divrei Torah. The rebbe told R’ Ovadia that his father the Bal HaShefa Chaim ZT”L gave a shiur in which he expressed his profound pain on the machlokes that exists between Ashkenazim and Sephardim, adding the late rebbe said “Avraham Avinu was from Aram Naharayim – he was Sephardi”.
Rav Ovadia gave the rebbe a copy of his soon-to-be-released new sefer Chazon Ovadia on Halachos pertaining to trumos and maasros. The rebbe added that he feels himself a talmid of the rav, learning from his seforim daily.

Wow! What a kidush hashem!
Wow, Rav Ovadia does a lot of good for Klal Yisroel and he was zoche to a visit by the Tzadik. (Of course Rav Ovadia is a Tzadik himself.)
