British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is seeking an early election on Oct. 14, which falls out on Sukkos.
Johnson will aim to have elections held then if lawmakers block the option of leaving the European Union without a deal, a senior government source told Reuters on Monday.
Jewish voters were expected to play a significant role in the coming election because of Labour’s anti-Semitism crisis.
Jewish community leaders are encouraging those who will observe the festival to register for a postal vote.
In all fairness, it is likely Mr Johnson was completely unaware.
