Another nail in the coffin of Israel democracy and pluralism! Since a significant part of the volunteers are young women, it just means that the quality of service will decline and it will probably start to cost more. But of course this does not bother the ultra orthodox. They will have their cronies in the Knesset fix it that they will be exempt from payment. When will the man in the street realize that he is being taken for a ride every time and made to pay for nonsense like this only because "we are all Jews"????
