From Israeli Film to Bnei Brak Gadol – Rabbi Uri Zohar | Meaningful People #45

Jul 15 2022

Stand-up comedian, actor, director. Uri Zohar was the biggest star in Israel. But then it all changed. Today he is known as the undisputed leader of the teshuvah movement in Eretz Yisrael.

What is less known is that Rav Uri is a tremendous talmid chacham and gadol in his own right. Over 85 years old, bli ayin hara, he sits and learns the entire day, and most of the night too, peeling himself away from his Gemara only when absolutely necessary, like when his presence is needed at kiruv events and the like.
