Well….. Wouldn’t you ?
The article is from Arutz Sheva / Israel National News.
Wait……… WHAT ?!?……… Who in their rig………
A law proposed by the Infrastructures Ministry would place Israel’s electricity under “rabbinical supervision,” at least on Shabbat.
Just a second……… Hold the pho………
Of course, electricity is not discussed directly in the Torah or Talmud, as it is a recent invention – but rabbis of the past several generations are all in agreement that using electricity on the Sabbath is a violation of halachic prohibition of “lighting a fire on the Sabbath”.
Can I get a word in edgewi………
For security purposes, the vast majority of IEC workers – especially the ones in production – are Israeli Jews, with workers in production usually undergoing a security check.

The Chief Rabbinate has in the past ruled that Jews are permitted to run the electrical system in Israel on Shabbat, because the power provided is needed “for the saving of a life” (pikuach nefesh), a situation that allows certain violations of the Sabbath. Electricity, for example, is provided to hospitals and the defense systems that protect the country, and others are permitted to benefit from this electricity, since it is produced in a permitted manner.

I’m really not sure what to say anymore without exploding in the urgency of making those who are still free understand that there’s ‘a bit’ of a problem occurring on a global scale – and NOT just with the peace lovers either.
But, I’m a snarkaholic.
I can’t help myself.
Kosher electricity, eh ?
IEC could start by circumcising every male transformer terminal.
When a generating plant first kicks up to pass 13,000 KWH output, does it have to read from Torah in front of it’s sister, brother, aunt, uncle and elder stations ?
And another thi…………
Naaaaaaaah, I’d better stop now.
Oh yeah, almost forgot:
