The Shas Pary spiritual leader and one of the greatest poskim of our generation Rav Ovadia Yosef was reportedly in too much pain to be able to give his regular Saturday night shiur in his Jerusalem synagogue this week. This shiur has served countless times as a much covered podium from which Rav Ovadia lashed out at Arabs and Jews, most emphatically at the Jewish Home party.

At the end of Shabbat last night the Rav’s personal doctor was rushed to his bedside and he decided that the feisty orator should stay in bed.

Rav Ovadia has been suffering from side effects of the surgery he underwent a month ago.

His son, the recently elected Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yizhak Yosef, took his place teaching the class last night.

The Ravs circle is calling on every Jew to pray for the health of Ovadia ben Gor’jia.
