JERUSALEM — Rabbi Ovadia Yosef was the spiritual leader of perhaps millions of Jews worldwide.
He toiled over the study of Torah during his 93 years in this world. He did not waste a second, spending every possible moment studying the holy Torah.
He was the final word on many of the most complex halachic issues during the last 50 years.
Close to one million people attended the funeral, possibly the largest funeral in the last two millennia.
In fact, someone went to pray at the Western Wall right after the funeral and there was only one other person there. He had never seen the Wall so empty.
