“ ‘Women's Singing Immunity’ Law Will Spark Dissent”


Chairman of the ‘Jewish Home’ Party Science and Technology Minister Rabbi Prof. Daniel Hershkowitz expressed his disapproval of the MK Yaakov Katz (National Union) law proposal by which religious soldiers will not be dismissed for violating a command to attend an event that features women singing.

“The law will spark unnecessary strife and dissent. The golden mean on the singing of women must be found through understanding and dialogue with the heads of the IDF and not through destructive law proposals,” Said Minister Hershkowitz.
