Youth Landslide: ‘No’ to Tal Law

Knesset Chairman Reuven Rivlin delivered a lecture in civic studies to a crowd of teenage Knesset visitors, and put the Tal Law to a vote. Rivlin presented both sides of the argument and the youth expressed themselves in a discussion that culminated with a democratic vote that was decisively against the Tal Law, demanding Hareidim serve in the IDF. Rivlin responded to the resounding ‘nay’ that the implications of such a decision could tear Israeli society apart.
