The Chief Rabbi of Holon and son of the late Shas spiritual leader and revered rabbi Ovadia Yosef was given a five month suspended jail sentence and a NIS 75,000 fine for his conviction in April on charges of breach of trust.

Yosef was convicted by the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court of breach of trust for exploiting his position to force food businesses to use meat approved by the kashrut licensing authority belonging to his family, Badatz Beit Yosef, and specifically forbidding them from using products and produce approved by contending authorities.
