Photos: Davening At The Kever In Union Field Cemetery Of Rav Yaakov Yosef Zt”L, New York’s Only Chief Rabbi, On His Yahrtzeit (Jdn)



  1. Interesting to point out, that he was considered a Mitnagid to Chassidim in his lifetime (i.e. a native from Kovna/Vilna etc.) and its Chassidim that are flocking now to his Kever with ‘Kvitlach’!
    In any case, may this true Gadol who was moser nefesh for Klal Yisrael be a Meiltz Yosher for us all!

  2. The reason so many from Williamsburg in particular, and from chasiddim in general, visit his kever, is because the Satmar Rav – the Divrei Yoel – held very much from him, in particular his of mesirus nefesh for kashrus.
