Tens of Thousands Attend Funeral of Rabbi Nissim Karelitz

Thousands of people attended the funeral of Rabbi Nissim Karelitz, a leader of the Haredi-Lithuanian public who passed away at the age of 93.

The funeral procession left at 12:00 from Rabbi Akiva Street in Bnei Brak, heading toward the cemetery on Hazon Ish Street, where the Rabbi will be buried. Many streets were blocked to traffic in Bnei Brak, and large police forces are escorting the funeral.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu eulogized Rabbi Karelitz, saying that he “grieves over the passing of renowned Torah scholar Rabbi Shmaryahu Yosef Nissim Karelitz, one of the giants of Jewish law in our generation.”

“His unique personality and extraordinary expertise in Torah and Jewish law literature raised up tens of thousands of students who will continue his path out of an abiding commitment to the Jewish people and its heritage. May his soul be bound in the chain of life for all generations,” the Prime Minister added.

Mike Pompeo, David Friedman visit Netanyahu's Sukkah

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu hosted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman at the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem Friday morning and gave Pompeo a brief tour of the residence’s sukkah.

Pompeo, who recently visited Ankara, Turkey for talks which culminated in a ceasefire agreement in northern Syria, landed in Israel Thursday night, during the Sukkot festival.

On Friday, Pompeo joined Ambassador Friedman at the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem to discuss with Netanyahu the ceasefire deal, and other major issues facing the region, key among them ongoing efforts against Iranian aggression.

At the end of the meeting, Netanyahu showed Pompeo the residence’s sukkah, or temporary booth, built for the Sukkot holiday.

“Since you’re visiting here on the holiday of Sukkot, we sit in the sukkah during the Feast of Tabernacles. We remember what it was like when we didn’t have a permanent home,” said Netanyahu.

“We sit here to have our family meals and visitors sit here in the Sukkah.”

“When you put the [schach] on the top, it is supposed to be porous enough so that you can see the stars. One problem is what do you do when it rains? The answer is you go in.”
