Rabbi Pinto Visits the Tomb of his Grandfather Moshe Aharon and Broadcasts a Live Prayer on his Pages

Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto will visit the tomb of his great-grandfather Rabbi Haim Pinto this Monday. He will recite religious liturgical pieces known in the Jewish religion as “Selihot” to ask for divine clemency for the children of Israel.

In the company of his disciples, Rabbi Pinto will make this visit in full respect of the measures of social distancing with regard to the Coronavirus. This visit will be held on the occasion of the Hiloula of his grandfather Rabbi Moshe Aharon Pinto, one of the sons of Rabbi Haim Pinto, who died a few years ago in Ashdod, Israel at the age of 73, after three long and hard years of suffering due to his illness.

The prayer and the recitation of religious songs will take place live from the tomb of Rabbi Haim Pinto, visited by Jews from all over the world. The broadcast will begin at 2 p.m. (French time) on all official pages of Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto, including on Facebook and Instagram, where thousands of Jews are following him.

Despite his unstable state of health, Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto insists on traveling to Essaouira, where the tomb of his great-grandfather Haim Pinto is located, to perform the prayer in commemoration of his grandfather Moché Aharon Pinto, who was one of the most respected wise men and rabbis in the Moroccan and international Jewish community.

Rabbi Moshe Aharon Pinto spent years living without leaving his home, praying and welcoming people, delivering instructions and blessings. He is also known for forbidding people to speak of his blessings, but the information spread directly after his death. He lived for 30 years at home in Essaouira, then 10 years in Casablanca, before deciding to move to Ashdod in Israel where he died.

It should be noted that Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto insisted two weeks ago on visiting the tomb of Rabbi Amram Ben Diwan in Ouazzane for a special and exceptional prayer broadcast live on his official page on social networks. This prayer was followed by more than one million Jews around the world, who were unable to visit him as they usually do every year because of Coronavirus and the closure of borders.
