      Struk Praises New Draft Law

      MK Orit Struk (Jewish Home) said Wednesday night that the new draft law is “fair and considerate.”

      The law “was enacted out of the recognition and appreciation for both the value of Torah study as well as army service, and by listening to the needs of the hareidi community,” she said.

      "The law has no sanctions, criminal nor economic. The law includes a period of adjustment in which the government and the Knesset will be able to decide how to move forward on this issue,” added Struk.
