As Israeli President Shimon Peres fights for his life, Israel’s chief rabbis are calling on the tzibbur to daven for his recovery.
Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi RavDovid Lau said, “Mr. Peres has earned many credits in his many years of service to the people of Israel to strengthen the security of the State of Israel from its day of formation, and it is appropriate for everyone to join the davening for his recovery at this time.”
Sephardic Chief Rabbi Rav Yitzchok Yosef said, “To his credit is the saving of the world of Torah by establishing the exemption (from IDF service) to yeshiva students and his great appreciation to the Torah.”
