Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef-The Movie
Tonight at 10:00 p.m. on Channel 10 in Israel, the documentary “Ovadiah Yosef” will be broadcast. A preview can be viewed here. Some people were upset that the advertisement just said “Ovadiah Yosef” and not “Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef.” The preview includes the connection between the Yosef family and the Irgun/Etzel. Apparently, most of his family was involved with the Irgun, and on the night of his wedding one of his brothers threw a grenade at a British Army truck, killing the inhabitants. This is what his brother described in the movie, but I am unable to find any evidence that on night of March 28, 1944 such an incident occurred, or at least on that scale. On March 23 there was an attack by the Irgun, so maybe the wedding was earlier than the invitation stated (it is in the video), or something else happened that night.
When a link to the movie will hopefully become available, I’ll post it.
Update: The TV profile can be viewed here, but I don’t know for how long.
