  1. Leon was voted because he’s religious. He better behave like a religious Jews and stop the Shabbos desecration in Yerushalayim and other anti-Torah blasphemes.

  2. Iyh we can have a positive outcome for all “chareidim ledvar Hashem” if this election convinces everyone of the importance of voting.

    • I don’t know which Gedolei Hador you’re talking about but many Gedolei Hador said not to vote for him because of his anti-Torah positions, like chillul Shabbos, pro Reform, etc.

  3. Iyh we can have a positive outcome for all “chareidim ledvar Hashem”, including Chasidim, if this election convinces everyone of the importance of voting. Then in the future with everyone united as everyone agrees is best, we will have the strongest Torah coalition. This election proved the facts on the ground but everyone will be pleased in the future if it causes more Chasidim to vote. Here in the USA as well… Even better hopefully we can soon merit to have malchus Hashem back…
