      Rabbi: Sanctions Will Deter Hareidim from Enlisting

      Rabbi Yaron David of the Netzach Yehuda association warned on Wednesday that imposing sanctions against hareidim who evade army service will deter hareidi-religious men from enlisting in the IDF.

      "What is clear to me that is that forced enlistment or criminal or economic sanctions will result in these guys not joining the army,” he told Arutz Sheva. “Today there is great motivation among hareidim to enlist, but if hit their brothers or parents are hurt, it will hurt their motivation.”
