Doom- what does Dr. Friedman mean by “ending support to the Haredi way of life”? If you read on, he seems to specifically refer to the prevalent reality among many Charedim who don’t serve, don’t work, and rely on governmental support. Now, you can have a problem with that assessment of Charedi society, but don’t take his words out of context. He doesn’t mean he wants to erase Charedim…. he just wants to try and fix three specific potential problems. And by enabling them to serve, not only will they obviously serve the people in the armed forces, but it will also remove many of the barriers for Charedim to find honest work and enable them to support their families without relying on support of others.
