Iran former chief rabbi Yousef Hamadani Cohen dies

Published: 03.31.14, 14:38 / Israel News

Yousef Hamadani Cohen, Iran's former chief rabbi and one of the cornerstones of its tiny Jewish community, has died. He was 98.

 

The representative of the Iranian Jews in parliament, Siamak Moreh Sedgh, says Rabbi Cohen died on Friday and was buried on Sunday.

 

Cohen was the spiritual leader of Iran's Jews from 1993 till 2007, and remained a senior rabbi even after he retired and Rabbi Mashallah Golestani took over. (AP)
