Charedi IDF Unit Records Highest Single-Day Enlistment In Its History

15

idf-frum-soldierMore than 100 chareidi men enlisted in the Israel Defense Forces’ Nachal Charedi unit today, the largest single-day enlistment in the history of the unit, media strategists Lerner Com reported.

Today’s enlistment was the first draft since the Aug. 1 expiration of the Tal Law, under which chareidi men had been essentially exempt from mandatory military service.

All in all, 200  chareidi  men have enlisted to the special unit in August. The unit provides religious soldiers with the required facilities to observe the laws of Judaism.

Since 1999, when the Nachal Charedi, a battalion in the Kfir Brigade of the IDF, was established, some 4,000  chareidi men have served in it.

“The unit represents an unprecedented success in recruiting members of the ultra-Orthodox community to the military and integrating them into the process of contributing to the state,” the director of the Nachal Charedi support organization said in a statement issued Thursday.

  5. Who cares what u feel! Are u a navi or something.al tiftach peh. Why not give a bracha ot something, instead of that u feel that hashem will r”l lo aleinu bring bad things upon his children.

  6. #’s 4,6,7,9, seem to be typical American Zionists who never served in the American Army yet are very quick to judge the chareidim as draft dodgers.

  7. Whatever happened to hishtadlus? We say “refoanu” in shmoineh esrei but we still go to the doctor, nachon? So why when we say “vlerushalayim ircha” would it be ok to just sit back and not take action. These soldiers should be matzliach!

  8. There must be more safeguards to assure that these soldiers can stay yirai Shomayim!
    May HKBH hold them in His Right Hand.
