Shachar Kachol Rules to Apply to Hareidi Reservists

The IDF’s Manpower Planning Branch has decided that the same rules which apply to hareidi soldiers doing their regular military service, will also apply to hareidi reserve soldiers. According to a report on the IDF website on Monday, the decision is meant to allow soldiers in the hareidi Shachar Kachol program to continue to serve the IDF even beyond their regular service.

Shachar Kachol soldiers are entitled to serve in bases which have a military rabbi, a synagogue and daily Torah class and kosher food. They are also entitled to serve alongside men only.
