This Day in History
1777: During the Revolutionary War, the Americans defeated the British in the Second Battle of Saratoga, also known as the Battle of Bemis Heights. This defeat led France to recognize the new United States of America and, more importantly, sign a treaty which brought the Americans much needed supplies, money and support of the French fleet. It was the turning point in the war that would create the home of the most significant Jewish community outside of Eretz Israel. (read more)

Ovadia Yossef émigre en Palestine mandataire à l’âge de 4 ans, et étudie à la Yechiva Porat Yossef dans la vielle ville de Jérusalem. Le Grand Rabbin Sépharade Rav Meir Ouziel lui donnera son titre de Rabbin à l’âge de 20 ans.
Entre les années 1947 et 1950, il préside le Grand Tribunal rabbinique du Caire en Égypte. En 1968, le Rav Ovadia Yossef est nommé Grand Rabbin de Tel Aviv. Élu pour 10 ans, il obtient le titre de Rishon Letsion, Grand Rabbin Sépharade d’Israël en 1973.
C’est à ce poste qu’il aura en 1973 à se prononcer (positivement), en faveur de la judaïté des Falashas (juifs d’Éthiopie).
Dans les années 1980, il patronne la scission des Sépharades du parti Agoudat Israël (avec le Rav Shach), scission qui donnera naissance au puissant parti religieux Sépharade israélien, le Shass. Ovadia Yossef en est toujours (en 2013) le principal leader spirituel.
Chez ses partisans, le Rav Ovadia Yossef est réputé pour sa mémoire phénoménale et sa connaissance de toutes les sources de la halakha à travers les siècles. Pour beaucoup de Sépharades religieux, en Israël et dans le monde, le rav Yossef a donc des facultés extraordinaires, qui donnent un poids important à ses décisions rabbiniques. Dans celles-ci, le Rav cite parfois des centaines d’ouvrages de halakha pour appuyer sa position.
Le Rav Ovadia Yossef a écrit de nombreux ouvrages et en particulier deux Responsa : Yéh’avé Daat,Yabiya Omer et hazon ovadia.
Son fils, le Rav Yitshak Yossef est l’auteur de la série de livres Yalkout Yossef, qui traitent de tous les domaines de la halakha selon les directives et les décisions rabbiniques de son père.
Accusé d’avoir projeté de le tuer, le Franco-palestinien Salah Hamouri a été condamné à une peine de sept ans de prison.
