MK Ariel: We'll Work to Strengthen the Torah


MK Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) addressed the issue of enlistment of yeshiva students during remarks he made on Thursday at the memorial ceremony for the victims of terror attack at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem.

“People ask us if we will protect the Torah scholars and I answer that we will work not to preserve what exists but to increase Torah study,” he said.

"We will do it, in my opinion, better than anyone else," said Ariel. "Together with the rabbis we will act to strengthen and enhance the world of Torah. It is a value that stands out on its own.”
