Odessa Rabbi Emerges as Key Player in Bid for Israel's IDB

Rabbi Avraham Wolff is helping Alexander Granovsky and Israeli tycoon Nochi Dankner take control of Israel's IDB Holding Corporation.

Over the years that Nochi Dankner has wielded control over the IDB group, questions have arisen over his ties with kabbalists such as Rabbi Yoshiyahu Pinto and Rabbi Yaakov Ifergan, popularly known as the X-Ray Rabbi. Dankner has often been seen making a pilgrimage to seek their advice and blessings.
