Watch: R’ Chaim Declines To Give Police Chief Candidate A Brocha Because He’s Not A Cohen




Israel is currently looking to replace the current police chief as his term is about to expire.

One of the candidates, police officer David Bitton, went to Harav Hagaon Rabbi Kanievsky for a brocha to be appointed the next police chief.

Watch the video to see Bitton make his rerquest. Instead of offering a brocha, R’ Chaim  asks Bitton if he is a Cohen. He did not answer the question, but just told the Rav that his name was David Bitton.

Yesterday, Motti Cohen was appointed temporary police chief.
