Header yeshiva roshei yeshiva and administrators are learning that the planned national government cuts by the treasury don’t single out chareidim, but will deliver a serious blow to the dati leumi yeshivot gevoha and hesder yeshivot as well.
While many in the dati leumi community supported the new legislation to draft bnei Torah from the chareidi tzibur, it would now appear that the government’s plan for cutting funds to mosdos Torah is not striking chareidi mosdos exclusively.
An urgent kenos is planned to take place on Wednesday, 13 Sivan 5773 at 14:00 in the Youth Hostel in Bayit Behan. Ads for the event call on hesder administrators, rabbonim and supporters to attend as they will discuss the bleak situation and seek to reach agreement on a course of action.
