Litvish Rabbonim to Attend Urgent Kenos to Discuss Chareidi Draft


shtOver 100 rabbonim shlita are expected to take part in a Monday afternoon 13 Teves 5774 gathering in Bnei Brak set to begin at 5:00 PM. The rabbonim will be discussing the Shaked Committee at the urgent kenos, the ongoing efforts to pass a new draft law that will compel chareidim to serve in the military or an approved national service program. As this meeting takes place, the Moetzas Gedolei Yisrael of Agudas Yisrael is going to convene in Yerushalayim to discuss the same topic.

The Bnei Brak kenos will take place in the hall at 10 Rav Hirsch Street in the torah city. The kenos was first scheduled to take place in the home of HaGaon HaRav Aaron Yehuda Leib Shteinman Shlita but after realizing so many rabbonim plan to attend, the venue was moved to the hall.

The kenos is likely to focus on how talmidim are to act when they receive the various notifications in the different stages of the draft process.
