Haredi enlistment campaigners berate plans to gut conscription law

Haredi enlistment campaigners have denounced the government’s plans to extend a 2017 deadline for implementing compulsory military service for haredi yeshiva students.

According to a draft of an amendment to a 2014 law published on Friday by the Defense Ministry, the deadline shall be postponed until 2020.

Between 2020 and 2023, an intermediary stage will obligate full time haredi yeshivas to fulfill enlistment targets.
