IDF Draft Focal Point of Special UTJ Sages Meeting


The induction of hareidi-religious Jews is expected to take center stage, Thursday, when the Council of Torah Sages of the United Torah Judaism faction in the Knesset is expected to hold a special meeting in the predominantly hareidi city of Bnei Brak, east of Tel Aviv. Other items on the agenda are funding for religious educational institutions and other issues affecting hareidi education, as well as legislation requiring a referendum on diplomatic agreements that require land concessions.

Among those expected to take part are the rebbes from the communities of Gur, Belz, Vizhnitz, Tzantz, Erlau and Sadigora.
