Jerusalem - Police beefed up security around Rabbi Ovadia Yosef today out of concern terrorists were planning to attack the Shas spiritual leader.

Several days ago, police investigated suspicions that an east Jerusalem man, who was apparently in contact with a Moldovan women employed at Yosef’s house, was planning to attack the rabbi. The east Jerusalem man had a background in security-related offenses and other crimes, but no concrete evidence was found to justify his arrest.

Nevertheless, at the recommendation of security officials, Yosef’s family took several precautions, including changing their locks and firing the Moldovan employee.

These stupid abstract statements has got to stop! Come together to what? Should everyone join together and dress like Rabbi Yosef? Should we all discard our nusach of davening and join together with Rabbi Yosef's nusach? Should we all join together and eat baklava instead of gulash?
Should we all disown our Rebbes and vow to kiss only Rabbi Yosef?
What exactly do you propose as achdus?

...Not to post comments such as yours...! Eating Baklava or Gulash or Davening Nusach Ashkenaz or S'phard doesn't make a difference, either. But respecting a Gaon and Godol Hador makes all the difference in the world!!!

Sorry, but with all due respect, is he really in the category of "Gadol Hador"...I see him more as a political figure than an Gadol although he is clearly an ehrleche rebbe

You're jumping in here from left field. Respect was not the subject.

He is most absolutley in the category of gadol hador. Especially if the word "gadol" is in reference to being "gadol b'torah".
You should err on the side of caution and not post in categories like this as you are clearly not according a very great man the proper respect.

chacham ovadia is definitly a gadol hador if we only understood what it means and try to become one instead of trying to put everyone down or trying to get involed with everyone elses buisness maybe mashiach would be a bit closer

I did not suggest he was not a learned rebbe....I said he was more o f a political leader than perhaps a gadol hador as I understand the term. What do you mean by the "bigest booky"??

Why is there a goy working in the Chief Rabbi's house?? There are plenty of Jews who would gladly cook and clean for a Gadol Hador just to be around such a tzaddik.

rav avadiya shlita on purim once about ten yrs ago asked the ppl there to say any shiela from any sheilos utchuvos from any rav ever .....someone asked a sheila and the rav told him that sheila was asked 78 times......they looked it up on one of the computer programs and it came up with 80 results......the rav then corrected himself and said that he had asked this sheila twice in his own seforim so its 80 ...he was on the mark ...as a child the elder mekubalim of yerushalayim said they were jealos of this little zaddikle from egypt
