Hareidim Demonstrate at Jerusalem Induction Center

Dozens of hareidi-religious Jews demonstrated, Thursday evening, opposite the Israel Defense Forces induction center in Jerusalem.

The demonstrators were protesting efforts by the government to increase hareidi national service. Organizers said, at the beginning of the week, that they were also protesting the introduction of "foreign elements" into hareidi education.
