MK Arbel to Egypt: Open Kever of Rav Yaakov Abuchatzeira


Belaaz reports that Shas MK Moshe Arbel appealed to the Egyptian ambassador in Israel to allow the opening of the kever of Rav Yaakov Abuchatzeira in Damanhur, Egypt.

In the letter, MK Moshe Arbel requested to allow Jews to visit the kever for at least for days each month.

At the end of his letter, he remarked, “I have no doubt that the opening of the holy place will bring great blessing to Egypt and its president, and will encourage tourism from all over the world to pray at the grave and stay in Egyptian hotels in Cairo or Alexandria, which will encourage tourism and strengthen the Egyptian economy.” (Belaaz)
