Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef is officially a civil servant, and therefore forbidden from any overt political activity. That has never bothered him. During his time as Sephardi chief rabbi, he has taken part in Shas party rallies and allowed himself to be photographed casting a Shas ballot in elections. Next year, when his 10-year term ends, he is expected to officially become the party’s spiritual leader.
