Everybody has to put the IDF into the list--why?! What makes the IDF something holy. When BG reorganized it after he demobilized the Palmach, he had a hidden agenda to place otherwise traditional Jews and make them Secular by ignoring all the clauses that protected the rights of soldiers who were Observant. It's different now, with a larger percentage of religiously Observant soldiers and officers, so . . . they might serve if the Secularist obstructionists in the upper echelons in the Army stop crying about the way religious soldiers are "causing problems". Yeah, the peyot that B-G cut when he saw the Yememite boy can be seen in the IDF, and daily minyanim are more in evidence than they were in the past. Other than that, we're talking about picking a midah, a mitzvah, some good precept that is meant to promote the health of Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu. What's wrong with doing something good for a change!
