Over 20,000 people were in Har Menuchos on Sunday evening 24 Sivan 5774 to mark the fourth yahrzeit of HaGaon HaRav Mordechai Eliyahu ZT”L ZY”A. Among them were Mekubalim Rav Harush, Rav Yeshua Ben Sasson, and Rav Yaakov Addis, who came from Shaare Zedek Medical Center, where he was admitted. Rav Addis collapsed on erev Shabbos after observing a number of fast days last week on behalf of the captive yeshiva students.
Also present of course was the rav’s son, Tzfas Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu Shlita and Deputy Minister of Religious Services Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan.
