Rabbi Yosef’s Chair Empty, but Torah Class Goes On
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s sons gathered Saturday night to continue the tradition of his weekly Saturday night Torah class, despite his passing several days earlier. Hundreds of people crowded the mourner’s tent outside the rabbi’s home to hear them speak.
The speeches were also broadcast to a screen outdoors for the sake of the many people left outside the tent.
