The Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel, Hagaon Harav Yitzchak Yosef, and the Lakewood Rosh Yeshiva, Hagaon HaRav Malkiel Kotler, met last night, in what is being called a “historic meeting”.
Rav Yosef has been in New York for the past week. He came for a Chasunah, and has been visiting many Sephardic Yeshivas and Mosdos around the Tri-State area, giving the community Chizuk, and delivering many Shiurim.
The Lakewood Rosh Yeshiva, Hagaon HaRav Malkiel Kotler spent this past Shabbos in the same community, delivering many Drashos and speaking at many of the major Sephardic Shuls in the community – including Shaarei Zion.
The two Gedolim met a Melava Malka in Flatbush last night.
