Yosef thanks pope for stance against anti-Semitism

Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef gives the first speech, zeroing in on the Ten Commandments and noting that the first five deal with relations between man and God and the second five, between man and man.

“It’s impossible to separate between man and God and man and his fellow,” Yosef says.

Yosef then tells a Talmudic parable about a donkey and a gem with the moral that man must not be selfish, but share what he has.

“We believe there is a place for God, but also our fellow,” he says.

Bringing up Saturday’s Belgium museum shooting attack, he then thanks the pope for speaking out against anti-Semitism and says the church can help bring peace, “a real peace.”
