Yes, folks. That’s what Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita has been talking about of late. Political parties in Israel are now preparing to air their TV ads for the upcoming elections scheduled to take place in the Knesset.
He has been quoted as saying that, “When a man buys a home, he does not move in prior to placing a proper mezuzah. This is kedushas habayis. We have a government. They build a government. What is necessary then, a mezuzah, and Shas is that mezuzah!”
It might be a reach to compare the strength and power of a political party to the protection of the G-d of the Jews. What happens if you don’t vote? Or worse, what if you vote for an opposing party?
