Sephardic Heritage Club: Tefillot at the Kever of Rav Ovadiah

Despite being in a period of “seger,” we are fortunate enough to be within permitted walking distance to take a special trip. Our students were led by over very own Mrs. Tova Askarinam, who lives locally in our neighborhood and who leads our Sephardic Heritage Club and teaches our weekly Sephardic Heritage class, to the Kever of the late Chief Rabbi of Israel, Chacham Ovadia Yosef zt”l.

Before departing on this special trip, we got to hear Torah and inspiring stories about Rav Ovadiah who continues to influence so many of us.

We were privileged to be able to pray and say Tefillot on this day in which tens of thousands of Jews from around the country came to our area to pay their respects to Hacham Ovadia Yosef who continues to to inspire and educate us all.
