Rabbi Auerbach: Now is Not the Time to Protest IDF Draft


Prominent hareidi leader Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach has said that given the current security situation "now is not the time" for demonstrations against the IDF draft, according to one of his leading followers.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva, a leading follower of the rabbi said he was currently opposed to rallies such as the one which took place yesterday at Jerusalem's Kikar Shabbat intersection in the hareidi neighborhood of Meah Shearim, in which some 2,000 hareidim protested the arrest of a yeshiva student who had refused to respond to his IDF summons.
