An “emergency atzeres” is taking place on Thursday, 9 Shevat, organized by the Sephardi Igud Bnei Torah to address efforts to draft women into the IDF.
The atzeres is called to coincide with discussions that have begun in the Knesset Foreign Affairs & Defense Committee, seeking to take away authority from the religious sector and place it in the hands of military officials vis-à-vis a religious girl declaring and proving her religious lifestyle – her adherence to Shabbos and kashrus.
The atzeres will take place in Tamir Hall in Jerusalem, beginning at 7:00pm.
