Solidarity Dinner for Former Minister Benizri
Yechiel Spira • Yeshiva World News
Shas cabinet ministers are expected to attend a Thursday night solidarity tribute for former minister, R’ Shlomo Benizri, who next month begins serving a four-year prison term following a conviction on charges of fraud, bribery and breach of trust. The event is scheduled to take place in the Ohr HaChayim Yeshiva.
Ads indicated Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Shlomo Amar Shlita would be in attendance but aides to the Rav stated this is not the case and his name was used without consent.
To say haredim have had a bad streak of ethical lapses would be understating the situation considerably.
