Petition for Bus Discounts For Yeshiva Students

5

8,500 talmidei yeshiva have signed a petition demanding an end to discrimination in public transport. 13% discounts are granted to students but not to talmidei yeshiva.

The signatories pointed out that this is ridiculous considering that the state considers Torah study so important that bochurim are granted draft exemption, while even those who oppose draft exemption cannot disagree that Torah study is not less worthy than the study of philosophy or ancient Greek.
