Shas Puts Israeli Yated in Cheirim


yated-israelThe political unrest among certain segments of the chareidi communities in Eretz Yisroel have reached immense proportions. Following the Israeli Yated‘s strong and continuous condemnation of Shas for agreeing to join the WZO, Shas is responding by placing a cheirem on the Yated. Supporters of the effort are trying to convince advertisers that if they place ads in the Israeli Yated, they are in essence making a move against Rav Ovadiah Yosef, leader of Shas’ Moestzet Chachmei Hatorah.
According to a report on the Hebrew website of Yediot Achronot, the organizers of the cheirim are hoping that Rav Ovadiah himself will actually call certain people to tell them to pull their ads from the Yated. Only time will tell whether that will happen and how it will play out.

Note: The Israeli Yated has no affiliation or connection to the American newspaper by the same name.

  1. Good idea to play the boycott card.
    If different media groups can not accept decisions of other ‘Torah Observant Kehillas’ without disdain & malice……then goodbye to our advertising.

  2. I have to agree with Shas on this one. You made your point, now pipe down. What will be gained by keeping at it? Furthermore Shas is run by a Gadol of the Sephardi Kehilla. He paskens what they can and can’t do. Leave it to Rav Ovadia. Why is it Yateds business what Shas wants to do? They are a news paper. Report news.

  3. Where is the Hakoras Hatov? Lets remember who was behind the formation of shas and who was behind the establishment of the Yated. This is unbelievable.
