Labor Candidate: Don’t Enlist Hareidim
Labor party candidate Meirav Michaeli announced Tuesday that, unlike most on the political left, she does not believe hareidi-religious men should be required to enlist in the IDF.
“I’m not in favor of enlisting hareidim,” she said. “Israeli politics has given rabbis power by continuing to insist on enlistment.”
