Watch: Former Chief Rabbi of France laid to rest

Thousands pay their last respects to rabbi Joseph Haim Sitruk. Hundreds of French Jews arrive for funeral.

The former Chief Rabbi of France, Rabbi Joseph Haim Sitruk, was brought to his final resting place Monday morning in Jerusalem.

After a service in France yesterday evening, Rabbi Sitruk’s remains were flown to Israel early Monday morning.

Born in Tunis, Rabbi Sitruk immigrated with his family to France, where he later served as Chief Rabbi of Strasbourg and Marseille. From 1987 to 2008, Rabbi Sitruk served as Chief Rabbi of France, a position he held even after suffering a stroke in 2001.

On Sunday Rabbi Sitruk passed away at the age of 71, leaving behind his wife and nine children.
