Court Proposes Compromise on Hareidi Enlistment
The High Court heard a complaint Tuesday from the Hiddush organization for religious freedom, which filed suit over the fact that hundreds of hareidi-religious men have been allowed to delay enlisting in the IDF.
While the High Court previously overturned a law allowing full-time Torah students to defer service, hareidi men have yet to be forcibly drafted. Six hundred young hareidi men who received or will receive call-up notices for the months August to October will have their actual service deferred for the present.
