Thousands Slated to Protest New Conscription Law


Hareidi communities across the country are planning to demonstrate against the approved conscription law later today (Sunday).

Israeli Army Radio reports that certain hareidi sects, such as those led by Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach have been called to protest the law, as well as the incarceration of a Yeshiva student who had not shown up for his draft date. Rabbi Auerbach’s disciples aim to cause tumult in the streets which will, in their opinion, hopefully lead to the total abandonment of the conscription law.
