‘A great loss to all Jewry but to the Sephardi world in particular’

The president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews Vivian Wineman says in a statement: “The passing of the great Torah scholar and spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef is a great loss to all Jewry but to the Sephardi world in particular. His scholarship and charisma brought pride to that venerable community and renewed interest in their ancient traditions. Our thoughts are with his family at this saddest of moments, as well as the countless Jewish communities who sought his wisdom.”
