Bnei Brak’s New Chief Rabbi


Rav Eliezer Simcha Weiss was appointed Bnei Brak’s temporary chief rabbi following the recent passing of Chief Rabbi Shlomo Korach, who was a leader of the Yemenite kehillah.

His duties will include overlooking all Rabbinate supervised eateries and factories in the city. Rav Weiss was rov in Manchester before moving to Eretz Yisroel decades ago, and was recently appointed a member of the Chief Rabbinical Council.

  1. The Posek Hador Hagaon Hatzadik HaRav Moshe Landau Shlita is the Gaon Rosh Av Beis Din of BB.
    The yemenite Rav that passed away and this temporary Rabbi are from the Rabbanut of the state that appoints Rabbis in every city.
    There is no contradiction as it’s always been that way. For example in Yerushalayim there is a Mizrachi Rav from the Rabbanut and then there are the Gaavad and Raavad of Edah Hachareidis. Rav Weiss and Rav Moshe Shternbuch.
