The Sanzer Rebbe Shlita is quoted in the weekly BaKehilla commenting on the sharing the burden issue. The rebbe states “Those shouting against lomdei Torah know in their inner hearts that it is not realistic to take all talmidei yeshivos to the army yet HKBH places these words in their hearts so they will not have a חלק ונחלה in our limud Torah.”
Dozens of talmidei Sanz in Netanya are counted among bnei yeshivos receiving draft notices. They talmidim met with the rebbe shlita, hearing words of chizuk while singing עוצו עצה ותופר.
The rebbe explained to the talmidim how the government believes we need them to exist, but this is not so for HKBH will send other shluchim. He explained that the situation existed for over 60 years, and during that time they merited a reward for supporting Torah but now, mamosh at the gateway of Moshiach, it appears that the “Army of Hashem made up of the tzaddikim and lomdei Torah will be established and the others will not be included and the tools of war will no longer be necessary for the enemies will surrender to the koach of Torah.”
