Hareidi Activists Phone MKs in Draft Deferment Crisis


Hareidi activists took to their phones on Wednesday night to speak out against criminal sanctions against conscientious objectors. Activists called upon the public to call up Members of Knesset and ministers in the Jewish Home party and ask them to sever their ties with the Yesh Atid Party. Yesh Atid has championed the cause of drafting male yeshiva students as part of their party platform. The Special Committee for the Equal Sharing of the Burden Bill, which is meeting Wednesday night, is chaired by Jewish Home MK Ayelet Shaked.
