Torah ruling against participating in Zionist votes

Torah ruling Of the great Rabbis of the Jewish People 1961

We also agree with the rabbis of the Rabbinical Court of Jerusalem to prohibit participation in the Knesset elections that were prohibited by our predecessors, who prohibited being involved with the Zionists and being involved in their elections to choose representatives because such representatives are collaborators in all the severe prohibitions committed there.

We add our names to theirs, and wish to encourage our fellow Jews who are loyal to the Torah not to participate in the elections in order not to violate the severe prohibitions and what accompanies them.

May G-d’s honor be raised, and may He have mercy on us and send the Messiah.
