Hareidi Group to Show Support for Hareidi Inductees


The hareidi-religious Tov (Good) movement will go to Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem, Sunday, to express support for hareidi soldiers being sworn in to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The swearing-in ceremony was scheduled for Thursday, but was postponed at the last moment and relocated to the base where the soldiers are serving, due to concerns that extremists would try to disrupt the event.

In response to the rage expressed by the soldiers and their families, it was decided to hold the event on Sunday at Ammunition Hill with increased security. One of the Tov members who is going is the older brother of one of the soldiers being sworn in. One of the leaders of the movement said those going to the ceremony will be doing so on there own and it will not be an official movement activity. The group has come out against the Perry Committee recommendations on expanding hareidi induction, saying forced entry to the IDF won't succeed.
