Proposal which would wreck National Service

MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) intends to present a new law which would increase enlistment of religious girls to the IDF.

The proposed law states that declarations of exemption will be made by individual girls themselves, this in order to preclude agents arriving in the schools for a group signature on the declarations of exemption.

Each girl who wishes to do national service and not enlist will be obliged to declare before a court or rabbinical court.

Lavie wishes to avert peer pressure being placed on girls to exempt themselves from military service.
