More than 800,000 people attended the funeral of renowned rabbi, Torah scholar and Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, 93, who died on Monday.
Devotees flooded to the capital from around the country to pay their final respects.
Eulogies to the rabbi were given outside the Porat Yosef Yeshiva in Jerusalem’s Sanhedria neighborhood, and the funeral procession then continued to the Sanhedria cemetery where he was interred alongside his wife, Margalit, who died in 1994.
