It was the largest funeral in Israel’s history. People from all corners of the world converged on Jerusalem. The crowd was diverse, spanning all religious backgrounds and every walk of life. Diplomats, politicians, and rabbinical figures came to pay their last respects to Maran Harav Ovadia Yosef, the late Sefardic Chief Rabbi of Israel. Who was this great rabbi whose life touched so many individuals?
Best-selling author and noted biographer Rabbi Yehuda Heimowitz has taken on the tremendous challenge of answering this question. Combining meticulous research, cooperation from the family of Rav Ovadia, and ArtScroll’s signature attention to detail and quality publications, the result is a magnificent new biography, Maran Harav Ovadia.
Chronicling Rav Ovadia’s early beginnings as a brilliant child to his becoming Chief Sefardic Rabbi of Israel, and the Torah revolution he started along the way, Maran Harav Ovadia reveals the life of this great leader — a rabbi who met with both world leaders and humble Jews seeking advice, and authored over 50 sefarim. His unprecedented combination of intellectual brilliance, humility, charisma, vision, and dedication to every community were instrumental in revitalizing the Sephardic community. This is more than a biography. This is a book filled with love, inspiration, stories, and photos. This is a book that you won’t be able to put down — or forget.
