Purim Craziness? Rav Yosef rules that Purim in Ramot is on the 15th and Rav Amar rules that it is on the 14th ... L'chayim!

Rav Amar's letter declaring Purim in  Ramot on the 14th 
Days after Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Yosef Shlita announced his ruling regarding the observance of Purim for residents of Ramot, Jerusalem Chief Sephardi Rabbi Shlomo Moshe Amar Shlita released his psak.

Rav Yosef announced that the new reality regarding Ramot is such that residents should observe Purim on the 15th of Adar, Shushan Purim, together with all Jerusalemites. This represents a change from the long-standing psak of Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef ZT”L.

Rav Amar released a letter stating that from his point of view, nothing has changed and Purim observance in Ramot should be on the 14th, a in line with Maran’s psak.
