Former State Senator David Storobin issued his condolences to the friends, family and all others who loved Rabbi Ovadia Yosef:
“Rabbi Ovadia was a great inspiration to millions of people. Whether you were Sephardic or not, even if you weren’t Jewish, his values and wisdom were a source of inspiration and guidance. This is a great loss to the Jewish people, but the impact of his life will never disappear,” said former Senator Storobin.
“A million people who showed up to his funeral recognized him as gadol hador. Few can argue with that.”
David Storobin’s stepmother is a Sephardic Jew.
