Quote of the Day

The whole issue of quotas (for the draft) is a red line for the Torah world. It is hard to believe the gedolei yisroel will accept that. Drafting from the age of 18 is very problematic. Therefore, if they want to make progress on this issue and not just turn it into a politicial and cultural fight - they need first of all to speak with us. If they can speak with Hamas and the PLO, they can also speak with the parties that have always been partners for so many years. With all due respect to the politicians, the decision is not theirs but is of the council of Torah sages and of the geolei yisroel

  1. Weren't they invited back in August? I thought the message was it was non-negotiable, so the political representatives of the kollel movement refused to show up.
