Budget cuts slated for Military Rabbinate

The Military Rabbinate looks set to lose 25 percent of its officer positions as part of the systematic budget cuts within the IDF.

The cuts are being made to staff positions and not to combat units and are part of a broad review by the IDF of its spending. That review identified that the number of officers in the Military Rabbinate has increased disproportionately relative to the number of enlisted conscripts.

Personnel from the IDF rabbinate are present in every army unit and military base and provide religious services such as kashrut supervision, prayer services and fulfill other functions.
