      Rabbi Shai Piron Opposed to Women's IDF Service

      Rabbi Shai Piron of Yesh Atid concurs with the Chief Rabbis' ruling that women should not serve in the IDF, "Under the circumstances, military service for women involves multiple possibilities of unavoidable compromise of personal modesty standards, and as we do not advocate extreme sports due to their inherent risk to one's physical health, so do we educate against putting one's spiritual integrity in jeopardy," wrote Rabbi Piron.
