    But it isn't the responsibility of the government to finance them. Don't try to pretend that Israel is short of Yeshiva students! What this is proposing is a welfare class! Did you even bother to read the article or are you simply jumping on your side of the fence and fighting? This money would be given to a family that has 3 kids or more and no source of income. That's ridiculous!!!! If you have 3 kids get a job, easy as that. Why should the state subsidize a welfare class, a burden to its citizens, so a group of irresponsible men (let's not pretend that it's women here) from Mea Shearim can study Torah instead of providing for their family. This kind of irresponsibility is sickening. We're not talking about students fresh out of Yeshiva (form when they were children) we're talking grown men with large and growing families...sit down. Am I really siding with Yisrael Beiteinu? At least they understand what you cannot the bill "perpetuates unemployment and damages Israeli economy...Furthermore, the bill bluntly discriminates against Israeli university students who serve in the army and pay their taxes.If Netanyahu circumvents the High Court of Justice, he will be circumventing democracy and showing contempt for the public."
