Chacham Ovadia Welcomes Back Deri, Speaks of Shas’ Unbreakable ‘Triple Bond’


chacham-ovadiah-yosefOn Shabbos, Chacham Ovadia Yosef welcomed R’ Aryeh Deri back to Shas, calling this past week, during which Deri, Eli Yishai and Ariel Atias agreed to share leadership of the party, “a bracha.”

“We have a triple bond that won’t be severed soon,” Chacham Ovadiah said during his weekly drasha. “Our movement has shown its strength in Torah, in virtues, in supporting yeshivos, and in helping aniyim and the weak. That is why they deserve all the brachos in the Torah,” he said.

Deri resigned from the party 13 years ago and Yishai assumed the chairmanship of the party after his departure. They will now be back together.

Not necessarily you are no Navi but the very fact that the Sephardim can get together and unite all fronts is amazing and we Ashkenazim are from there espesially with the latest with Ashkenazi camps in the Knesset it’s a mess. We have to look at the Sephardim as examplars. Skoyach to chacham Ovadia yosef.
