Rishon L’Tzion Continues His Political Agenda Against Kol Berama Radio

Rishon L’Tzion Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef Shlita continues to use his high-level civil service post to advance the Shas anti-Eli Yishai agenda, which includes banning Kol Berama Radio, which is affiliated with the former Shas party leader- Eli Yishai.

In the latest episode, Rav Yosef refused to give a shiur after realizing Kol Berama was set up to broadcast it live, only willing to permit Kol Chai Radio to do so, as the latter is viewed as Shas-friendly. Rav Yosef also spoke out harshly against Kol Berama, which backed down and left, permitting Kol Chai to broadcast the shiur exclusively, the Kikar Shabbos News report details.

The shiur in question was on Hashana Rabba night in Asher Ha’ish Beis Medrash of HaGaon HaRav Yosef Ben-Porat. After Rav Yosef entered the beis medrash, he saw two microphones were set up, one Kol Berama, prompting him to ask “Which Kol is this?”, learning it was the one he is opposed two, instructing organizers to immediately remove the microphone. “I don’t speak on Kol Berama” he exclaimed to the tzibur present, compelling the station to announce the cancelation of the planned live broadcast.
