Haredi Soldiers Won’t Have Separate Draft Day Procedures


Despite requests made by haredi Knesset ministers and high expectations on the part of Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, haredi soldiers will not be granted separate proceedings upon arriving at the army base on “Draft Day.”

In a response written to the haredi representatives, the Defense Minister’s bureau chief, Chaim Blumenblatt, said that separate proceedings for haredi soldiers is technically impossible at this time.
