Hundreds of haredim demonstrated in Bnei Brak yesterday (Monday) protesting the arrest of two yeshiva students who refuse to serve in the IDF. Police arrested at least forty, including members of the Jerusalem Faction, as protests sprung up throughout the country.

The Jerusalem Faction demands that yeshiva students have no contact whatsoever with the IDF, even to defer army service for their Torah studies.
