  1. He should always wear one. However, here he wanted to appear as one of the stam “people”, not necessarily as a religious one.

  2. what a clown, same time as he has his “heartwarming meeting” he signs the release of 104 convicted terrorists.

  3. Is the presence of the chief rabbis more significant than the presence of the ?????? If he doesn’t cover his head for the ?????, why should he for them?
    May I ask what was heartwarming? Did he back off on ???? ????? Forced ???? of ??? ????? Cutting child subsidy payments? Forcing the degradation of our ?????? ??????? by groups like WOW?

  4. I can’t believe everyone missed R’ Yosef’s brilliant yet respectful rebuttal. Unscripted and spontaneous. Smart man.

  5. Even the most anti secularists wear a kippa in the presence of such Rabbis. Even goyim do in Jewish events and holy places. Show some respect is right!
