More than 50 chareidi soldiers were sworn into the Paratroopers Brigade at a ceremony at the Kosel, the largest-ever recruitment in a special paratroop company.
The ceremony marked the sixth draft class of the “Hetz” company formed in 2017.
Additional charedi units include the Netzach Yehuda Battalion of the Kfir Brigade infantry unit deployed in Judea and Samaria, and the Rotem Company in the amphibious Givati Brigade. Special accommodations include stringently kosher food, complete separation from female soldiers and a more religious environment.
Reports indicate that an additional such company will soon be opened in the Golani Brigade, the most highly decorated brigade in the Israel Defense Forces. JNS.ORG
