MK Ze'ev: Council of Torah Sages will Lead Us


Member of Knesset Nissim Ze'ev of the Sephardic hareidi-religious Shas party was full of optimism and without worry, Tuesday, about the future of the party despite yesterday's passing of Rabbi Ovadia Yoseph, the party's only spiritual leader since its inception.

Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, Ze'ev said, "The spirit of our teacher and rabbi will accompany us for many generations." He also said, "Shas is a spiritual movement, led by the great scholars of Israel, spiritual leadership without politics. It will continue to accompany us in the light of the rabbi's words."
