I express my admiration for the delicate diplomacy of your article which gives me some hope for the survival of the Israeli nation. I would however go one step further as concerns the financing of Torah students. It would be fitting, I feel, that the Torah should be a university cursus and students who have gone through the usual school system, done their military duty and wish to become Torah students should benefit as you suggest.. No Israeli citizen or resident should should be allowed to live in ignorance of the world ar large by getting a strict ideological education which rejects and condemns all other ways of life. That is the role of the madrassas.
