Haredi enlistment holding steady indicating ‘sincere change’ in attitudes to military conscription

The rate of haredi enlistment to the IDF appears to be holding steady despite the dire imprecations from parts of the haredi leadership following the passage of the law for haredi conscription by the last government in March 2014.

Government set targets for the interim years before full implementation is set to take effect for the military enlistment year of June 2014 to June 2015.

The previous legal framework for haredi enlistment was struck down by the High Court of Justice in February 2012, creating a massive political headache ever since for the governing coalitions.
