Busy checking the bubbles in the pesachdik Coca-Cola: can't attend the funeral.

Israel's chief rabbis are "too busy preparing for Pesach to attend the Pope's funeral".
What others have done / are doing:
  • Prince Charles is delaying his own wedding for one day in order to attend
  • On some previous occasions, when, for example, UK Chief Rabbis have not wanted to attend Church services, they have attended and respectfully stayed outside the church.

Fact: flying time from Israel to Rome ... 2 hours? 3 hours maximum?

Question: how can we possibly ask others to respect us, when our religious leaders so manifestly make no effort to respect others????

Oy l'dor; oy l'manhigut.......
