IDF To Begin Sending Draft Orders To Chareidim Next Month

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant held a meeting on Tuesday morning with senior IDF officials regarding the preparation of the army for the recruitment of Chareidim.

At the end of the meeting, Gallant’s office stated that “Gallant approved the IDF’s recommendation to issue draft orders to the Chareidi sector in the coming month, in accordance with the absorption and screening capabilities and after a significant improvement process of the existing data regarding possible recruits has been carried out.”

Gallant also said that a dedicated information campaign for the Chareidi sector will be launched with information about the service paths adapted to Chareidim in the IDF.

“The Defense Minister and the IDF Chief of Staff agreed during the discussion that this is an operational need and a complex social issue, and must be carried out in accordance with the principle of ‘successful recruitment’ in order to reach a meaningful service for members of the Chareidi sector while maintaining their lifestyle, and bring an increasing number of recruits in an orderly process,” the statement concluded.

As YWN reported, the IDF has admitted that the recruitment of tens of thousands of Charedim is “neither possible nor practical” and will only try to recruit 3,000 Chareidim in the next year and the year after that.

  1. The Zionist shmad is already a 9.9999 out of 10. The more they increase that – and there’s not much more to go – the sooner that Zionist idol will disappear forever.

  2. B’H! Now the tremendous chillul Hashem of Chareidim dodging the draft and not participating in defending Eretz Yisrael – will finally be mitigated!!!!

  3. May G*D shield them from all danger,
    and protect them from all harm,
    and grant them very very great success and victory
    against all the enemies of the Jewish people.


    In Tanach, Sefer Shoftim, [the Book of Judges] chapter 5, the Prophetess Deborah [Devorah HaNeviyah], sings a Divinely-inspired song.

    In chapter 5, verses 12 to 16, she publicly praises those Jews who fought against the enemies of Israel. Then she publicly REBUKES those Jews who did NOT join the fight against the enemies of Israel.


    Rambam, Hilchot Shabbat, chapter 2, paragraph 23:

    [The following rules apply] when gentiles lay siege to Jewish cities:

    If their intent was financial gain, then Shabbat laws should not be violated because of them, nor are we allowed to wage war against them.

    If a city is located near the border, however, we should march against them with weapons and wage war against them, even when they are [merely] demanding hay or straw.

    In any location, if the gentiles’ intent was [to harm] Jewish lives, or if they engaged in battle with a city or laid siege to it, without stating a specific intention, we must wage war against them and the Shabbat laws should be violated because of them.

    It is a mitzvah for every member of the Jewish people who can come [to their assistance] to go out and help their brothers who are under siege and save them from the gentiles [even on] Shabbat.
    It is forbidden to delay until after Shabbat.

    After they [the Jewish soldiers] saved their brothers, they [the Jewish soldiers] may return home with their weapons [even] on Shabbat, so that a dangerous situation will not be created in the future.


    Once full-scale war broke out after the State of Israel declared its existence on May 14, 1948 [CE] Reb Shraga Feivel’s [Mendlowitz] thoughts were never far from Eretz Yisrael.

    A group of students saw him outside the Mesivta building one day, talking excitedly with Rabbi Gedaliah Schorr and gesticulating rapidly with the newspaper held in his hand.

    “If I were your age,” he told the students,
    “I would take a gun and go to Eretz Yisrael.”

    Rabbi Shraga Feivel Mendlowitz was the founder of Torah U’Mesorah and became principal of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas in year 1921 CE.
    His career in Yeshiva Torah Vodaas lasted 25 years.

    He was known as “the premier architect of Torah in American history.”
    He left this world in 1948 CE at the age of 62 years.

  4. Hakatan: Your mindless rants about the evil “Zionist” state are getting a bit stale. Israel will continue to be a Zionist state and b’h will increasingly find ways that will allow Chareidim to serve in a manner that restores some degree of equality in national service and personal sacrifice.

  5. Good! Thank you Hashem! Learning Torah and fighting to defend your country, community and family are not mutually exclusive. There are those that study Torah while deployed in Gaza.

    Useless Greece balls 10% learning 90% Coffee hock, Lisbon harsh hock, smoking and drinking. Go to the army

  6. Dear Coffee Addict,

    Thank you for your question.

    In Tanach, in Sefer Shoftim, chapter 5, verses 12 to 16,
    those Jews who fought against the enemies of
    the Jewish people were all praised by the Prophetess Devorah,
    regardless of what level they were on.

    Those Jews who did NOT fight against the enemies
    of the Jewish people, they were all rebuked by the
    Prophetess Devorah, regardless of what level they were on.

    Therefore, level has nothing to do with it.


    If one of your children needed an emergency
    ambulance ride to the hospital emergency room,
    would you refuse the services of the ambulance
    driver, if the ambulance driver were on a low level?

    The level of the ambulance driver is NOT RELEVANT.
    The only thing that matters is the he moves your
    child to the hospital emergency room,
    and as quickly as possible.

    The level of the IDF / Tzahal (Israeli Army)
    is NOT relevant. The only thing that matters
    is that they defend Jews from bloodthirsty
    Muslim Nazis who want to kill ALL [100%] Jews.

    I wish you a pleasant day.


  7. Barn Owl,
    A serious question.
    Can you quote me any (renowned) Rov, Rebbe, Rosh Yeshiva, Gadol that is of the opinion that it is a Chillul Hashem (Chareidim not serving) or is it your own opinion?

  8. Does that mean that all the rat invested mindsets that blow their zionism here in the comments will not happen anymore, because they’ll all be busy kissing their idf idol?
    Or do they speak a lot and do little……?
