On Thursday, 1 Rosh Chodesh Kislev, protests were held in four cities against the continued incarceration of Rachel Noah bas Chedva, who remains imprisoned in an IDF jail after being inducted and refusing to enter the military.
Rachel is one of a number of religious women who were drafted but being that they were not frum their entire lives, military authorities do not accept their affidavits that they maintain an Orthodox lifestyle and are therefore not required to serve.
Protests were held at 9:30AM and 9:45AM in Yerushalayim, Beit Shemesh, Bnei Brak and in Modi’in Illit.
Organizers insist they will continue protests until the “Zionists” release the women who today remain imprisoned.
