Chacham Ovadiah Yosef, Belzer Rebbetzin Address Kinnus for Girls


chacham-ovadiah-yosefChacham Ovadiah Yosef participated in a large gathering this past week held for thousands of bnos Yisroel ahead of Yom Kippur organized by the Tzohar organization run by Belz. The kinnus was initially canceled due to lack of funding, but was held in the end following a request from mechanchim and mechanchos who felt that it is an important source of chizuk for the thousands of girls who participate. Girls from 30 high schools around the country boarded buses to attend the event.

At the kinnus held at the Rinas Yerushalayim Hall in Givat Shaul, Rav Yosef shared divrei hisorerus, explaining the power of one’s zechuyos for all of Klal Yisroel during these days of Aseres Yemei Teshuvah. Rav Yosef also lauded the work of Tzohar in bringing Am Yisroel closer to the derech haTorah.

The Belzer Rebbetzin related divrei bracha in the name of her husband, the Belzer Rebbe.  

The kinnus featured other speakers as well and concluded with kabbolas ohl Malchus Shomayim.
