Election day in Israel is a holiday, with most businesses closed to encourage voting. Chabad Chassidim utilized their vacation and the hundreds of thousands of voters congregating by the polls for a mass Mivtza Tefillin.
Voters and activists from all parties gladly rolled up their sleeves to do a Mitzvah. Even many who were campaigning for anti-religious parties responded warmly. Knesset Members were also seen by Chabad booths, and candidate for prime minister Benny Gantz approached a tefillin stand near his polling station to speak to the Lubavitcher stationed there.
