The primary focus of the Yahadut Hatorah campaign surrounds the new reality in Israel without the protective cloak of the Tal Law – the effort to induct bnei yeshivos into the IDF.
Speaking to the weekly Mishpacha Magazine, Agudas Yisrael’s R’ Meir Porush was asked about those talmidim who have decided to leave beis medrash. He stated that this is not a matter for him, or Yahadut Hatorah, which is working to protect bnei Torah. Porush stated that those who opt to leave the beis medrash are not the responsibility of the party, which is now focused on addressing the harsh realities that exist today and the planned induction of thousands of bnei Torah into the military.
