Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita addressed the High Court decision declaring the Tal Law illegal last week in his motzei Shabbos drasha on the eve of 3 Adar 5772. The rav stated “Hashem will wage the war… (ה’ ילחם לכם ואתם תחרישון).
The rav stated there is no other nation comparable to Am Yisrael, the thousands upon thousands engaged in Torah study, from all age groups, which he explained brings tremendous joy to HaKadosh Baruch Hu.
The rav addressed avreichim and yeshiva students, explaining “you do not have to attack” regarding the nullification of the Tal Law – Hashem will fight on our behalf.
The rav also address mounting tensions regarding Iran’s determination to achieve nuclear independence, citing the posuk (בכל דור ודור עומדים עלינו לכלותינו, והקדוש ברוך הוא מצילנו מידם) In every generation they rise up to destroy us… Rav Ovadia spoke of the Haman of each generation, and there are gilguls of Haman. He added that we only have Hashem to rely upon… (אין לנו על מי להישען אלא על אבינו שבשמיים, אל יעזבנו ואל יטשנו).
The rav instructed those in attendance to simply continue adhering to Torah and Mitzvos and rely on Hashem.
