PHOTOS: Sephardi Rabbonim Convene An Atzeres Surrounding Efforts To Draft Women Into The IDF



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.

  1. This is an over-cooked cholent by the sikrikim who run around from Rav to Rav stiring trouble. This language is far far from what Sphardi Rabbonim would write.

    To write that “whoever has Jewish blood running through his vains” wouln’t keep quiet (like it says on one of the posters) is implying that either you agree with us or else you’re lacking in Yiddishkeit! and even if you’re R’ Chaim Kanyevsky! – …

  2. There should be NO mingling whether religious or not.
    A Jewish army marches on its purity not on mingling.
    Even if a Jewish man does not study Torah, he can avoid mingling.
