    Israel today offers or is working on the issue that it has offered regulationary exemption for Jews from orthodox and ultra orthodox backgrounds from serving in the Israel Defense Services. This is a heresy. G-d does not distinguish any jew by their own participation in Torah overall as the only reason that they exist. Torah comes first, but Israel must be formatted to be a democratic and patriotic state. Israel does not need to allow and should not allow exemptions to anyone based on the conduct of their study programs in any sense at all. To do this, you set up a society where there are issues with the common man and the common man does the work for the state while the patriarchs do not do the same work that is demanded of every usual citizen. This to me sets up a system of slavery.
