Rabbi Yosef Slams Hareidi Harassers

In his weekly class Saturday night, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef spoke out against actions by Hareidim that angered others, including spitting and harassing women. “There are some Hareidim who do things that should not be done,” he told hundreds of followers. “They are doing it to provoke others.” He also spoke out against the use of Holocaust imagery in the demonstration by Hareidim Saturday night against media defamation of their community.

Rabbi Yosef was speaking shortly after several hundred Hareidim gathered in Meah Shearim for that protest.
