Yachimovich: Expect Fewer Hareidi Recruits


Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich said at the opening of the party meeting Monday, "The government is investing too much energy in arm-wrestling, while its stated agenda loses momentum. Anti-Hareidi sentiment and legislation like draft coercion will drop the current trend of a relatively high Hareidi recruitment percentage to zero. All the negative sentiment in the media will end up defeating the purpose."
