Shas MK Yossi Taieb, who serves as the chairman of the Knesset’s Education Committee was heading a meeting when he received a message about the bitter news of the petirah of the Rosh HaYeshivah, z’tl.
He broke into tears, saying: “At the beginning of the meeting, we davened for his refuah. We now received the bitter message of his petirah – of the Rosh Yeshivah, HaRav Edelstein, z’tl.
“We’ll receive the details of the levaya later on.”
Still visibly upset, Taieb then took a sip of water to calm down.
