      Hesder Track won't be Harmed

      Overnight, agreement was reached between secularist Yesh Atid and the religious-Zionist Jewish Home, according to which the Hesder track will not suffer from changes except for the lengthening of the military service chapter in the track from 16 to 17 months, as agreed in the Coalition agreement.

      Hareidim up to age 26 who enlist in the IDF will be counted for the purpose of the enlistment quotas, making it possible for the hareidim to fill the quotas.
