Rabbi Yaakov Yosef: "I would not put myself into Emmanuel incident"

There was a surprising statement this (Wednesday) afternoon during a prayer dedicated to the recovery of Harav Yaakov Chai Yoseph.

The Mekubal, Hagaon R' Yaakov Ades, told of a statement heard in a conversation at the hospital, a long time ago, from Harav Yosef on the Emanuel affair, "If I knew that the affair will reach places as it did, in the first place I would not put myself there."

The prayer rally was held on the graves of Hachida and Hag"r Mordechai Eliyahu zt"l, buried side by side at Har Hamenuchot in Givat Shaul, Jerusalem. Many rabbis and the family of Harav Yaakov Yosef visited the graves to supplicate in prayer for him.

Among the rabbis who participated in prayer, were: Harav Yosef Eliyahu, the Mekubal Harav Yaakov Ades, Harav Shmuel Zafrani and others. David Vazana, one of those present at the rally, confirmed the information in a conversation with Behadrey Haredim.

Harav Ades did not elaborate in detail about the conversation between him and Harav Yosef, but those present said that the intention was that if Harav Yosef would know that the affair will develop in this way, would evolve into arrests and prayer rallies, he would not get involved.

Attorney Yoav Lalum, Director of the 'Noar Kahalacha' organization, and associate of Harav Yosef, who led the fight against discrimination in his name, said in response to Behadrey Haredim: "Our eyes are directed to the complete recovery of our beloved teacher Maran Hagaon Harav Yaakov Yosef. It is not our interest to enter into interpretations and rumors said in the name of the Rav, since Harav Yaakov is known as one who does not need spokesmen or commentators, but says his opinion, the opinion of Torah, out loud.
