Gilad Shalit To Meet With Maran Rav Ovadia


Gilad Shalit will be meeting with HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef in the coming days, with gabbaim to the Gadol HaDor reporting the Rav has been inquiring as to Gilad’s condition the entire day, as the events unfolded.

It appears a meeting is planned to take place in the coming days, with the hope the soldier will be strong enough for such an event, both physically and mentally. It is hoped that he will be traveling to Yerushalayim next week, at which time he will visit with the Rav in Har Nof, and then travel to the Kosel.
