The IDF Intelligence Corps has increased its enlistment pool to include chareidi women as well as charedi men, Israel Radio reported this morning. Military Intelligence has decided to recruit 10 married chareidi women with children. The soldiers will be able to combine a career and family life, and bring their young children or babies to the base.
A military source confirmed these details, and said that the women will be placed in army intelligence units, including Unit 8200 (an information gathering and code breaking unit), computer engineering, and electronics units.
He added that the women will engage in software development and in the promotion of special intelligence projects.
