Shas Spiritual Leader in Service of Party Head's Needs


A source from the Shas political party told Arutz Sheva that the appointment of Rabbi Shalom Cohen, as the late Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s successor, is a strategic move on the part of the party’s head, Aryeh Deri, and should serve his needs. 

Rabbi Shalom Cohen, Head of the Porath Yosef High Torah Academy located in the old city of Jerusalem was recently appointed as the spiritual leader of the Shas party, 6 months after former leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s passing.
