Report: Hesder First Year Students Being Called Up

7

idf-soldierIn an unprecedented move, the IDF has begun drafting students in their first year of Hesder yeshiva who are not yet registered within the framework of the Hesder system, Arutz Sheva has been informed. As a result, thousands of 18 year olds currently in Hesder yeshivos may be required to serve a full three year stint in the army, as part of the general soldier units, as opposed to the Hesder units they expected to serve in.

The five-year Hesder program mixes Torah study with IDF service. Recruits in the program spend their first year and a half in the framework studying in Yeshiva, then serve in the regular army for a year and a half, alternating with semesters of study in their Yeshiva. Read more here.

  1. Just proves the points that many are making that they are just interested in getting the youth to throw away their Yiddishkeit, knowing full well, many come out of service much less frum than when they went in or going completely off the derech. It is very unusual for the IDF to do this just at this time when all this conscription brouha is going on.

  2. “the IDF has begun drafting students in their first year of Hesder yeshiva who are not yet registered within the framework of the Hesder system”

    This is truly excellent news!

  3. I am heartbroken for those young men and their families, however I can’t help noticing that those who try arranging a compromise with the evil anti-Torah reshaim are the first ones to be kicked hard by said reshaim who know no gratitude.

  4. who are not yet registered within the framework of the Hesder system”

    Now that I have reread the article, are they registered for Hesder or are they not? If not, then this is IDF procedure..

  5. It is remarkable that a force which incorporated the disabled both physically and developmentally cannot work things out for those who learn Torah? Seriously what is going through the IDF and their policymakers’ mids?
