Whether or not daylight saving should finish a month later or not is a separate issue from the bigoted comments about the religious in this article: 1. The vast majority of Jewish Israel, whether religious or not, observe the Yom Kippur fast. This is a statistical fact. The shorter day convenience may or may not justify an extra month of winter - but the anti-religious tone of this article is despicable. 2. Anyone who fasts Tisha b'Av and Yom Kippur will tell you that 25 hours seems much longer when it finishes later in the day. One gets hungry at a certain time of day. 3. The point of the fast is well beyond "mortification of the soul". This is not the place - but tat simplistic statement shows ignorance.
