>>Follow Matzav On Whatsapp!<<

Hafganos broke out across Eretz Yisroel today to protest the arrest of a bochur, a student at Kamenitz Yeshiva in Yerushalayim, who visited a police station to submit a complaint about an individual who has been harassing his family. While his appearance at the station was unrelated to army duty, he was promptly taken into custody for not reporting to the IDF.

The bochur was taken to a prison on Erev Shabbos to serve a ten-day sentence for his crime.

He did not report to a draft office in accordance with the view of Rav Shmuel Auerbach, who has instructed his followers not to communicate with the IDF at all when summoned for IDF duty, even for a draft deferment.

  1. The sooner the bachur is released from jail, the sooner his Yeshiva can expel him for not listening to the psak of the majority of the Gedolei Yisroel and the official rule of the Yeshiva. It is not for individual bachurim to decide to pick and choose daas Torah, especially when it comes to a fringe approach to such an explosive issue.

  2. Anyone who needs help in issues involved with the army(or anyone who wants to financially help pay running the org) 02-650-7494 fax 073-373-6557 and email [email protected] or ת.ד. 7931 ירושלים it’s called איגוד לבני תורה הספדים למאבק בגזירת השמד-

  3. It’s a good thing mental health services are now part of the regular insurance system in Israel and these people can get the help they need for free…

    Because of them my bus was late yesterday and I was late to an important event by 45 min…Thanks a lot….

  4. Next time I gotta go there, bring my camera and film these people then give it over to the police. Why do I have to be late because of these butlanim?
