Rishon L’Tzion: Women Shouldn’t Even Go To Sheirut Leumi

1As rabbonim affiliated with hesder yeshivos combat plans to assign female soldiers to the Tank Corps over their pleas and objections, Rishon L’Tzion Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef Shlita expresses his opinion – girls should not even be sent to sheirut leumi.

In his motzei Shabbos shiur in the Yazdim Shul, Rav Yosef stated that it is not only prohibited for women to serve in the IDF, but they are prohibited from serving in sheirut leumi too. “They boast female pilots! So what, is this the way of the Torah” he asked.

The rav then spoke of the pain of his father, HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef ZT”L, and how when he was niftar he was dealing with this, something that contributed to his pain significantly, the forced induction of bnei torah into the military. “This wicked people have made a law – Lapid and his cohorts. Maran had tremendous tzar (pain) over this, taking the bochrim to the military. Who knows. Just as the Chazon Ish died over the induction of females, taking it to heart, who knows If he died over this?”
