In the meeting today, with HaGaon HaRav Aaron Leib Shteinman Shlita, Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin explained the months ahead will be “critical” regarding the bnei yeshiva velt and the Tal Law.

The speaker was received warmly by the rav, with the former meeting with gedolei yisrael as an emissary of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. He recently met with the Belzer Rebbe Shlita as well as with Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita during Pesach.

Rav Shteinman reportedly told Rivlin “We must make certain that every bachur who wishes to study Torah is permitted to do so”. The speaker promised the gadol hador he will do all in his power to permit the Torah community to continue studying Torah as is the case today.

  1. The ideal solution would be for the IDF to officially recognise that Limmud Hatorah defends the nation, and to set up military yeshivos in which soldiers’ assignment will be to sit all day in uniform and learn Torah, under military discipline. That way those who are not serious about learning will have no incentive to fake it, and those who are serious will not be accused of failing to do their bit for the national defense. Those who are opposed to the medinah and refuse to defend it will be exposed for who they are, and can be denied privileges that are reserved only for those who served. And those who are more suited for other kinds of service can easily be reassigned where their particular talents are most needed.

  2. To milhouse the Chazon ish said that even if they will say to learn under their auspices it’s assur since we can’t know what they will do
