President Isaac Herzog Brokered The “Peace” Between Angel And Chareidim [Videos]

Ex-Labor MK Omer Bar-Lev and Yaron Angel, one of the company's owners, pay a shiva visit to the home of the Rosh HaYeshivah, z'tl, bearing letters of apology.

President Isaac Herzog was behind the shiva visit of ex-Labor MK Omer Bar-Lev and Angel owner Yaron Angel to the home of the Rosh Yeshivah, z’tl on Sunday.

When Herzog paid the Edelstein family a shiva visit last week, he asked the family members if they would be willing to receive a visit from members of the Angel administration. The Edelstein family agreed and Herzog then spoke with Bar-Lev and Angel and arranged their visit.

The Rosh Yeshivah’s sons accepted Bar-Lev and Angel’s apologies.

In the video below, Bar-Lev thanks the Edelstein brothers for agreeing to their visit.

HaRav Shlomo Edelstein said: “We’re opening a new page. It’s clear that the Rosh Yeshivah, z’tl would forgive you. You should be zochech to do a lot for the Torah world.”

“There’s nothing like kiruv levavos,” Bar-Lev replied.

Watch the Kan News report on the story below:

(YWN Israel Desk – Jerusalem)


  1. My neighbor crashed into my car. He apologized! Would this, by extension, mean that I too must forgive my neighbor for after all he did apologize! His apology includes his expectation that I release him from covering the damages. After all he did apologize!

  2. No peace yet Herzog brokered nothing. With a gay son I doubt his brokering was adhered to. Angel to me has yet to apologize. Can not shorten someone’s life and forget. This is not a real truth

  3. A lesson must be forced down the throat of the Elite israel.

    No more abuse of the charidim.
    No more cutting peios.
    No more forced labor on frum yiddim on shabbos like after WWII.
    No more BBQing pigs on Yom Kipur.
    And no more of taking the frum yiddim for granted.

    With 1.25 child and two dogs you thieves and thugs who stole Jewish new born children from their mothers and gave them to secular to raise them and brought millions of non Jewish Russians and now adopting American Reform movement’s hollow marriage laws in israel? go bark somewhere else.
    Move to NY and CA and eat pork chop and yell out BOSHA until pork’s come home.

  4. Smile for the camera..

    רב שמחל על כבודו אין כבודו מחול

    It’s true that he would have been מוחל on a personal level. But we cannot be מוחל on the כבוד התורה.

  5. What President Herzog & probably the Eidlestein family comprehend is, that many workers at the Angel Bakery company, had nothing to do with this entire spat, but had livelihoods & פרנסה on the pipeline as Angels probably was getting close to laying off significant # of staff, so saving these innocent staff their פרנסה rightly so, has to come first.
