Sharing the Burden without Coercion

Rabbi of Beit El Zalman Baruch Melamed reiterates to INN “Forced draft of Yeshiva students could make a rift in Israeli society. Legislation should determine that the IDF drafts less soldiers of higher quality, post-Yeshiva students should be granted an optional exemption in exchange for additional taxes off their salary, and full-time Yeshiva students should be awarded larger stipends, and all educational systems should promote the Torah value of IDF service.”
