Rabbi Yitzhak Levy’s apology notice to Rabbi David Stav

A lot of ad for Oriyata

During a press interview that took place during the past year, I said that Rabbi David Stav Shalita ‘was out of the question’.

I would like to make it clear that this was an outburst that I did not intend, and that this statement does not reflect my opinion, and I never intended to claim that Rabbi Stav is not Orthodox, not then and certainly not today.

I would like to apologize to Rabbi Stav Shalita for the great anguish of mind caused to him by these words.

Truth and peace loved

Rabbi David Stav was represented in the lawsuit by Adv. Asaf Banmelach and Adv.

Rabbi Stav said following the apology: “I accept the request for forgiveness from the rabbi of Nesher, Rabbi Yitzhak Levy Shalita, it is fitting that the days between Kassa and Ashur should include forgiveness as well as forgiveness. Rav Levy’s honest words were evident and I was happy to comply with the words of the Halacha to accept the request for forgiveness. I hope that in the future the conversation between scholars, even when they differ in their opinions, will be dignified and respectful in the way of the Torah.”
