Ayeles Hashachar Or Chazon Ovadiah?


Elad and Modi’in Illit submitted requests to the Interior Ministry to alter their names to Ayelet Hashachar, the name of Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman’s seforim.

Shas member of the Yerushalayim municipality Chaim Cohen shot a letter to Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, asking him to rename Elad after Rav Ovadiah Yosef’s teshuvah sefer, Chazon Ovadiah.

  1. What happened to fulfiling the tzavaah? If Rav Shteinman didn’t want articles in the papers about him, you think he would want a city renamed after him?

  2. There is a basic problem with naming a town in Israel Ayelet Hashachar. And that is that there is already a municipality with this name, which is the kibbutz named Ayelet Hashachar. And the official names of kibbutzim is their name without a prefix of kibbutz.
