Yeshiva Funding to be Based on IDF Enlistment
Under a new plan, funding for yeshivas will be linked to the number of students who enlist in the IDF, the Education Ministry announced Tuesday evening.
Yeshivas that send many students to the IDF will receive more points, which will translate to more financial assistance.
“The initiative is part of a decision by the government of Israel aimed at encouraging yeshiva students to enlist in the military,” the Education Ministry statement said.
