“Bennett Came to Learn about Hareidi Society”


The rabbi of the Kolomei Hasidim, Nachum Weissfish met Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett as he visited Hareidi bastion Yeshivas Mir and Hevron Monday. “I recommended he be wise and prevent the division of the nation over drafting Yeshiva students to the IDF, and he responded ‘I came to learn’. I think that was a wise reply. It is important to realize that Yeshiva students cannot be drafted by force, a decision that could divide Israel.”
