Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita received a sheilah from Rabbi Yigal Cohen, Rosh Kollel Yabia Omer in Bnei Brak.
The rav explains to Rav Ovadia that Rav Amnon Yitzchak gives a weekly shiur in his beis medrash and in light of recent events, Rav Amnon’s decision to join the election race, there have been inquiries to determine if it is fitting to permit Rav Amnon to continue with the shiur.
Rav Ovadia is quoted as saying that “it is a mitzvah to replace Rav Amnon by one who is a Yiras Shomayim”. The rav used the loshon הקדיח תבשילו, Rav Amnon acted inappropriately.
