‘Forget the Rabbis, Think of God’
When it comes time to vote, Israelis should think of one thing: what G-d wants from them, says Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, the chief rabbi of Tzfat.
“There are rabbis who say things, but we need to think of what G-d says to us,” he told Arutz Sheva. “Ask yourself, ‘What does G-d want from me, for the Torah, for the land of Israel, for the unity of Israel?’”
“Don’t think of what they threaten you with, or pressure you with, what matters is what is good for the nation of Israel,” he added.
