Hareidi Soldier: “The IDF Betrayed Us”


Speaking with Kol Chai Radio, a Hareidi IDF serviceman said the IDF was not keeping its promises to keep their service gender segregated. “We were persuaded to serve in the IDF, we were promised segregation. The promises have been broken. We feel betrayed and disrespected.  The soldiers would rather sit in military prison rather than hear a woman sing. They forced us to attend an event last night where we were addressed by the Head of IDF Manpower, who is female. At this rate, Hareidi enlistment will drop to zero. We will follow the example of Rabbi Ravad and will also quit serving in the IDF.”
