Mothers of IDF soldiers: Allow our sons to study Torah

Hundreds of mothers whose sons are serving in the IDF signed a petition asking Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot to enable Rabbi Peretz Einhorn, an officer and reserve rabbi, to give a Torah lesson every Sunday at the IDF Training Campus.

The Director of Technology and Logistics, General Aharon Haliva had stopped Rabbi Einhorn from presenting his lesson but the mothers asked what was wrong with a motivational talk for soldiers when they are not on active duty and are not inside an army base.

The mothers wrote: "Please don't stop our sons from studying Torah in their spare time, don't prevent them from raising their spirits in their routine work. Allow Rabbi Einhorn to give his lessons outside the base."
