A life-changing vision of God on election day

I had a vision of God on election day.

Here’s what happened. I was walking to my voting station in Bak’a* . First, I passed by the Meretz booth, where the young woman looked up briefly from her daf yomi (daily page of Talmud) to hand me a flyer. It should be noted that not one of the booths of the so-called religious parties featured anyone learning anything about anything, let alone Torah. The implications about those parties and about Meretz would be staggering enough, but then…

I saw a picture of God. How did I know that it was God? On the poster, it said, “Israel, choose (vote for) God,” with a picture of God. Here, I’ll show you:

A picture of the God whom Israel should choose

That’s not the exact poster I saw. I didn’t have a camera with me. Just kidding! Actually, I was so struck with awe and overwhelmed with religious devotion that I forgot to take a picture. I found that one on the Internet.

Think it’s a mistake, or a typo? Here’s one with the caption, “And the Holy Blessed One saves us.” Saves us from… matza? Cool. There’s also a reminder to vote for Shas.

So, if you’re keeping score:

  • Shas: -1000 points because of idolatry.
  • Meretz: +350 points for learning Torah.

Just remember that next time we vote (June, I assume).
