Hareidi Minister in Surprise Visit to Induction Office


Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman of the hareidi-religious Yahadut Hatorah (UTJ) party paid a surprise visit Tuesday to an IDF induction center. Litzman decided to visit in light of complaints from the hareidi community claiming that IDF officials had ignored agreements according to which the medical exams for hareidi recruits would be tailored to their religious backgrounds.

Litzman called on the IDF to ensure that the isolated cases in which the agreements were not honored would not be repeated.
