Report: No Money for All of Hareidi Induction Program


A representative of the Treasury told the Perry Committee on the Equal Burden of Service that the ministry could not allocate funds for part of the program to recruit members of the hareidi-religious community for national service, according to the Ma'ariv daily

The official said a number of components of the plan were allocated high levels of funding: insurance indemnity for the military's preparation for hareidi recruitment, the addition of positions in the hareidi and Arab civilian service, and the Economics Ministry's program for hareidi employment. In addition, a budgetary supplement is needed to fund economic incentives intended to push the hareidim into military or civilian service.
