First time ever I am in Israel for Yom Kippur.
Now I see the importance of our insistence on a Jewish state.
Not because of the total absence of cars - a true shabbat shabbaton.
But because the fast went out well before 6pm !
How wonderful to have your own state and be free to turn the clocks whichever way suits our religious observance least painfully.
Let's NEVER give it up.
Best wishes to all.
