  1. No way are we sending our kids to be secularized by the IDF! It’s only getting worse -courtmartialling exceptional charedi soldiers because their Rav doesn’t allow them contact with women soldiers, thrashing the IDF rabbinate and denying Jewish soldiers exposure to Torah and Judaism! 20-25% of dating leumi
    soldiers come out of the army no longer religious. The IDF doesn’t need charedi soldiers, it’s all a ploy “to integrate them into Israeli society” in other words to secularize them into a culture that is a bad combination of the worse of Eurotrash and the worse of materialistic American cultures!
