    There are several varieties of Orthodox. Avrum Burg, with politics similar to Gideon Levy's, considers himself Orthodox. Rabbi Michael Melchior, more moderate, is also. Orthodox like these send their children to the army as much as people like Levy. The ultra-Orthodox, AKA the "black" (-clothed) or charedi, were exempted from serving by Ben Gurion. The Tal Law is a recent deal to bring some charedim into military & possibly other nat'l service. The "national-religious" Orthodox are represented by former general Ephraim Eitam in the Knesset. They tend to be enthusiastic and focused about national military service. Many live in the territories. Many secular Israelis live there also. All three sorts consider themselves Orthodox, that is, "shomer mitsvah." This means keeping the Sabbath, kashruth, and other customary methods of spiritual mindfulness, and regarding Tana"ch and Sha"s as holy. The boundaries blur: Nahal Charedi, char-dal, etc. And other striations exist.
