Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita met with Rachel Atias, whose parents and siblings were killed in a vehicular accident in Tiveria.
Rachel was brought to the rav’s home in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem by her uncle and other family members.

The uniqueness of the Rav Yosef is his connection to AMCHA YISROEL and national issues.
He gave the order for the SHAS party to vote for the new Regulation Law which protects those Holy Jews who live in Yehuda, Shomron and parts of Yerushalayim. Chacham Ovadia is willing, able and open to listen and decide on national issues that can not be ignored.
