Rav Yosef And The Rosh Hashanah Yonah
Some posts I’ve been meaning to get to... (Part I)
This story happened way back on Erev Rosh Hashana and received some positive press… more recently it has received some negative press. It’s interesting, though, to see how the same events are portrayed from completely different perspectives.
On one leg: A dove (the bird kind – not the soap) landed on Rav Ovadia's Shlita Shtender Erev Rosh Hashana. No one was able to shoo it away until Rav Ovodia quoted some poskuim about doves at Mincha time. Some believe it must have been a gilgul while others just poke fun (at time maliciously).
Here are some various takes on the episode:
Mystical Path's Take
Dreaming Of Moshiach's Take
The Jewish Chronicle's Take
Failed Messiah's Take
