Sharing this with his kind permission
«Much has been said- and will be said- about the passing of HaRav Ovadia Yosef zt"l.
I wanted to share with you two items.
1- a video of HaRav Shlomo Aviner shlit"a at Atreret Yerushalayim giving a hesped
2- the translation of the hesped, available here: http://www.ravaviner.com/2013/10/ha-gaon-ha-rav-ovadiah-yosef-ztzl.html and below (thanks to Rav Mordechai Tzion).
As an aside-One of the things I most admire about HaRav Aviner is his tremendous Kavod for all Talmidei Chachamim- even when he doesn't necessarily agree with them about everything. I think this great Kavod (which has taught me a gret deal) is shown in this hesped.
May we share happier news.
