Elections like color war

Filed under: Current Events — Reb Moshe @ 4:04 am

Today was the election for tzfat mayer. In Israel, elections are similar to the old color war games we used to play in camp. Everyone is into it and voicing themselves. Kids are sent into the streets to hang posters and even a 4 year old knows who their congregation says to vote for. For my wife and I, it is a day of hiding from the noise and pushy activists. To explain to someone that you don’t get involved in Israel state/city politics for religious reasons goes on death ears. For us, we are glad it is over and our phone stops ringing. We want the best for our city but want to be respected for wanting to stay on the side lines.
