Recently, a group of Jews met with the Pope in the Vatican. The story was covered extensively on YWN, and many videos were viral on social media.
YWN is doing neither – but today we are simply publishing an audio clip of the Telzer Rosh HaYeshiva, Hagaon HaRav Mordechai Gifter ZATZAL, who spoke about a group of Jews that met with a previous Pope when he visited Miami.
Rav Mordechai Gifter (October 15, 1915 – January 18, 2001) was the Rosh Yeshiva of the Telz Yeshiva in Cleveland and among the foremost religious leaders of Orthodox Jewry in the late 20th century.
For many years he led the presidium and leadership council Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudath Israel of America. He was one of the most electrifying speakers in the Jewish world.
