Today, as millions of people in Israel head to the polls, two young Lubavitchers who are eligible to vote for their first time will not be casting a vote at all. No, they are not boycotting the elections • Full Story
Today, Tuesday, millions of Israelis head to the polls to vote for their political parties, but two eligible first time voters will not be voting.
Ynet reports that Yossi Fogel and Shmulik Zeigan, both aged 19 from Kiryat Malachi, were supposed to vote for the first time in their lives on Tuesday. But on Sunday they were standing at the terminal with a Torah scroll, for they were on a mission.
“We are going to northern India to prepare the Chabad House for Passover,” they said. “We have a lot of work there, to clean and ready the place. We will have about 150 guests there for the Pesach holiday. It is important to vote – but we have a mission and we cannot just abandon it.”
