I envy his confidence

in the leadup to the elections for Chief Rabbi (which may possibly get postponed again), Rav Shmuel Eliyahu, Chief Rabbi of Tzfat and candidate for the position of Chief Rabbi of Israel, was asked an interesting question at a recent session in Yeshivat Hakotel in Jerusalem. Rav Eyal Yakobovitz, Rosh Yeshiva of the Hesder Yeshiva of Tzfat, asked Rav Eliyahu what is the first thing he would do upon being elected as Chief Rabbi of Israel?

Rav Shmuel Eliyahu gave a unique, and I think unusual, answer in response.

Rav Shmuel Eliyahu said that should he be elected to the position of Chief Rabbi the first thing he will do is invite the Pope to a meeting and teach him the book of prophecy, help him do teshuva, and thereby uproot evil from the root. And the second thing he would do, he said, is spend Shabbos with the soldiers in the South.

I envy his confidence. He is going to invite the Pope to a meeting, help him do teshuva and uproot evil from the roots. Impressive!
