Does Rav Ovadia Have A Facebook Page?

Well, I'm sure Harav Ovadia Yosef aka Gdo'l Hador, and Meran does not have a personal facebook page. However there is a facebook page for Rav Ovadia  with a surprising 10,000+ "likes".  There is also this Facebook page.

I am not surprised by the amount of "likes" he has received. However, I can't but cringe to see an important rabbi turned into a celebrity. The thoughts of "Liking" or not, great torah scholars is somewhat troubling and does not add any honor to the torah world.

I also equally amused to see that the ads on the side claim that the page is sponsored (בחסות) Shelly Yachimovitch and Danny Ayalon. Who knew?

Hat-Tip: Menachem Mendel
