Yishai: Disengagement Caused by Harm to Torah


Interior Minister Eli Yishai addressed the Knesset and urged The Jewish Home to enter a  coalition with the Hareidim, “Our sages warned Jewish towns are destroyed if Torah teachers are not paid their wages. During the second Sharon government, Hareidim were left out, and the Disengagement came soon after. I implore you to cooperate with those who study Torah full time. The merit of the study of Torah keeps the nation surviving.

“Even the IDF would rather keep the Yeshiva students out of the  army, to maintain the status quo.”
