Rav Yoram Abergel ZT"L
Rav Yoram Abergel ZT"L, the head of the Rav Pa'olim institutions, has passed away. His efforts in enhancing Judaism and bringing the masses to Teshuva are legendary.
There was a strong friendship between Rav Abergel ZT"L and Rav Ovadia Yosef Shlit"a.
One of his sons eulogized him saying: "The rabbi brought the Redemption closer with mercy. All the time, he brought the Redemption closer..."
According to Kooker, he supposedly predicted the Redemption to come on Asara Betevet of this year. (h/t Mashiach Is Coming)
May this prediction pan out to be correct and may Hashem comfort Kelal Yisrael.
