ywnisrael.israelHundreds of members of the Eida Chareidis community traveled to IDF Prison 6 on Monday afternoon 6 Teves 5774 to protest the continued incarceration of talmidei yeshivos refusing to enter the IDF.

They crowd began by reciting Tehillim as they await the arrival of Eida Chareidis Gavaad HaGaon HaRav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss Shlita and the Toldos Aaron Rebbe Shlita. While the rabbonim shlita are not expected to address the protest, they are expected to request to enter the prison to visit with the talmidim. They will give the talmidim a bottle of wine, chocolates and a sefer on Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef ZT”L with a personal inscription.

  1. While there is nothing wrong with noisy demonstration, they’ll have to do more to pressure the Israelis. Massed civil disobedience, appeals to international human rights organizations, etc. The seculars believe that only a few hundred Neturei karta types really oppose the zionists, and the rest of hareidim have become comfortable suporters of the state of Israel, not to mention have fallen in love with governent financial benefits – this image needs to be challenged in order to effectively opposed conscription of hareidi yeshiva students.
