The confinement imposed on citizens around the world has not prevented Rabbi Yoshiyahu Pinto from communicating with his followers, be it through social networks where his accounts are followed by hundreds of thousands of fans, such as Instagram or Facebook, or through certain applications such as “Telegram”, through which he receives many questions and answers them in great detail.
Question of the day:
subject: epidemic, fasting
Some rabbis have called for fasting in this time of epidemic, what should we do?
The RAV’s answer: It is written in pirké avot: Make yourself a Rav. So everyone must have one Rav and ask these questions to the Rav alone. The Rabanim who called for the fast are tzadikim and they know very well what they are doing.
The members of my Shuval Israel community must ask this question to the Shuval Israel Rabbis.
