A Jewish politician interrupted Victorian Prime Minister Dan Andrews during a speech at a local synagogue.

United Australia Party candidate Leon Kofmansky ruined Dan Andrews’ election promise over a new kitchen for the synagogue in Melbourne’s St Kilda last Sunday by declaring that the religious group cannot be bought.

Mr Andrews has pledged $5 million to support various Jewish projects in Melbourne, including the refurbishment of several key properties, if re-elected.

However, Mr Kofmansky interrupted Mr Andrews by saying the Jewish community has not forgiven him for holding religious gatherings under strict lockdown during the Covid pandemic.

A stunned witness filmed the moment Mr. Kofmansky yelled at Mr. Andrews from across the synagogue.

‘We’re not for sale. You can’t buy us all out,” he said.

“We won’t forget what you did to us last year. It’s not even your money you’re splashing around with. It’s tax money.’

He was then escorted from the building by security.

Kofmansky later said that the confrontation was not planned and that he was unaware that he was being filmed.

“People applauded and cheered. I am from communist Russia and it reminded me of a politburo meeting. It was surreal. Then I decided to interrupt,” he told Rebel News.

“Just 12 months ago he terrorized the Jewish community. He closed our synagogues, he sent police on horseback and it was done under the guise of science and to keep us safe.

Now he wants to buy our votes. He threw sacks of money at Jewish institutions in an attempt to buy votes and this is clearly taxpayer money.”

Mr Andrews has faced massive backlash from various parts of the community over his strict Covid rules that forced Victorians to suffer the country’s longest lockdowns in 2020 and 2021.

The impact of the Andrews government’s Covid policies is expected to be a potentially influential factor in the Victorian election on November 26 as the Prime Minister seeks a third consecutive term as leader of the state.

While the ALP government maintains a slight lead in the polls, the election result is now expected to close as opposition leader Matthew Guy seeks to end Andrews’ long tenure as prime minister.
