Interesting Psak: Davening for Elections

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
Behadrei is reporting that Rav Gershon Edelstein, Rosh Yeshiva of Ponevesz Yeshiva, was asked an interesting question, leading to an interesting psak.
Among a series of questions, Rav Edelstein was asked if it is appropriate to daven for good results of the upcoming elections.
Rav Edelstein responded that yes, one should daven for the elections, as many Torah institutions are dependent upon the results.
I dont see a big chiddush in that, as we daven for all sorts of physical and personal needs beyond just forgiveness and life/death. Also it is a long day in shul and there is plenty of time to focus on all sorts of things, including a few minutes for elections, if that is your thing.
