    A very important number that is missing is how many Hareidim followed the policy of the Eidas hareidus (and Satmar) and boycotted. This is important since those who boycotted probably will resist conscription (giving the zionists the choice between arresting them and making them into martyrs, or ignoring them and merely refusing them any financial benefits beyond those given to Arabs who don’t support the state)

    Where is Ramat Bet Shemesh? Rechovot? Nvei Yakov?

  3. kitzur_dot_net says:

    was just going to ask the same thing, where’s Beit Shemesh?

  4. shmoolik 1 says:

    Ramat Bet Shemesh 10 minutes south of the main road to Yerushalim before you the road goes uphill – in the foothils of Judea
    Rechovot 15 minutes south of Tel aviv in the center of the country
    Nevi Yaakov is in the north eastern corner of Yerushlayim

    STOP! thats wrong. The eida chareidis told every ben torah to vote what are you saying?

  8. Loyal Jew says:

    There has got to be a way of finding out who voted against the wishes of the gedolim, at least in small places.
