The answer is, OF and a big OF.

Much love.
You're intellectually challenged...

Leave aside the integral yoga but even where intellectualism is concerned the posters on this thread are brain dead and many are religious fanatics.

Anyway, good luck.

Explain the meaning and significance of "Sephardi CHIEF Rabbi of ISRAEL"
How big is the Sephardi group as a RELIGIOUS group in Israel? Compare it in terms of size and influence to other religious groups .
What is the meaning of Sephardi?
What is the size of all those who would be classified as Sephardi?
What is the Global influence of Yosef? Are you saying that he has no influence outside of Israel?
You can find all the answers yourself in moments using google.

And when you do, you should feel foolish.

Suffice it to say, he has regional influence within his party, and absolutely NO global influence.

Not all sephardis in ISrael follow Shas either. Just like not all Jews in Israel follow the Chief Rabbi of anything.

Cult of R---you should know better than to judge an entire religion based on the ramblings of a FEW loud-mouthed extremists.
HughBe--- I am rushing but I like the tone and balance of your post. That aside does the quote below suggests to you a FEW?
Is the word EPIDEMIC a word that means FEW?
"Municipal RABBIS are public servants funded by the public, and the moment they speak out like the worst Kahanists, they no longer have a place in public service," he said. "We are witnessing a spreading EPIDEMIC of RACISM and xenophobia, and we should act firmly."
Epidemic =extremely prevalent; WIDESPREAD.
Racism= hatred of other races
xenophobia= HATRED of foreigners
I rest my case.
You have no case

I find your words interesting. Is Yosef well known in the US?

In addition, it would be useful if you had addressed all the points raised. Do so now.

I did address it. As usual you refuse to accept it.
Shas is an ETHNIC party, its not a religious sect. Sephardim are an ethnic group. Do you understand this now?(Second attempt)
Furthermore, both Eric and COR have explained the difference between notoriety and actual influence. In other words, influce of whom? Religious sephardim WITHIN Israel. And not even ALL religious sephardim. SOME religious sephardim. Not even all the mizrachim. So what?
"I did address it" ,only partially.

Hugh's worldview is so narrow and linear that he's fixated on the verbal hate of scum who're the rabid Rabbis of the Frankist Sabbatean kind - the minority among Rabbis.

Hypoxia. I flew into the region only 2 days before to acclimate to the temperatures. I didnt even think of worrying about the oxygen. Not the first time I have suffered from altitude sickness, I was flattened for a day once during a trip to the Andes in Ecuador. But this time it felt like cardiac symptoms, and I wanted to make sure I could fly home without keeling over while on the airplane. So I ended up in the cardiac ward for a few hours to rule out cardiac arrest, stroke, or clots. Cant wait to see the bill.
Which mountain.

I think you'll find the bill to be a lot more painful than the cardiac symptoms.

COR---Hyperbole

Here is help in doing so.

" Fifty Israeli rabbis have signed an open letter warning Jews not to rent or sell property to non-Jews, saying those who do should be "ostracized," a copy of the letter showed on Tuesday."

rabbee the conjunctional phrase, is to be treated no different than the singular conjunction and/or. your just being an obstinate dimwit. gold as well as silver, makes it plural. as much as the two as'es are plural as well.

it is not the same as a comparison: gold is more expensive than silver. you have a compound subject, instead of a singular subject and singular predicate.
As I remarked in an earlier post, your aptitude, skills and fundamental knowledge in Physics, Math and Chem are poor and so is your understanding of the English language.

And, you're supposed to have been educated at Caltech and UC at Berkeley.

Well, I must say that Cathedral School and IIT are far better if a dunce like you happens to be an alum of these elite US universities.

You're rock bottom in Math and Science and yes in English as well.

Anyway, it does not matter.

No, it's genetic inferiority.

Yes, it is genetic inferiority which makes you intellectually challenged, and, boy, you claim to be part Jewish when it's evident that many Jews are intellectually so superior to most other communities.

Perhaps, your Jewish ancestry has been camouflaged by your other ancestry (no offense intended).

I make no claim, I ASSERT what is TRUTH.

I have no problem with my own intelligence as it stands in a SUPERIOR position to the averages of ALL races and nationality. To match it you would have to have a very high IQ and enter into the domain of the chosen FEW

Consider his party affiliation and how many voters that represents. Also look as how many times he was reelected to the Senate - surely a sign of popularity and influence. Now tell me how INFLUENTIAL this man was. You may not have heard of him, but rest assured, every voting-age American who keeps up with current affairs has heard of him.

Now please explain to me why a loud-mouthed Sephardic Jew from Israel makes it on your radar, but a loud-mouthed evangelical politician in America who undoubtedly had influence over many more people does not?
