Activists Hail Supreme Court Ruling to Defund Yeshivas


The ruling states that the Education Ministry can no longer transfer funds to be used toward the education of students aged 18-20 if the students are eligible to enlist in the IDF but have failed to do so.

“The Supreme Court has made it clear to the Knesset that even its patience has a limit, and it will no longer allow hundreds of millions of shekels to flow to yeshivas in violation of the law,” declared Uri Regev, head of the Hiddush organization for religious freedom.
