Chief Rabbi Rejects Reports Israel Giving Away King David's Tomb


The office of Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef utterly rejected, Sunday, all reports stating that Israel is considering giving away King David's Tomb to the Vatican. Last week, MK Nissim Ze'ev (Shas) claimed, in an Arutz Sheva interview, that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu himself asked Rabbi Yosef about the halakhic [Jewish law] ramifications of giving away the tomb, which sits on Mount Zion in Jerusalem.
