'On Holocaust Remembrance Day, we ought to discuss our ability to uproot the seeds of intolerance, violence, self-destruction and moral deterioration,' says Maj. Gen. Yair Golan.23:41 04.05.16 | 0 comments
If you ask any commander in the army, they will tell you that the a high percentage of their most committed soldiers are the religious ones. They are comprising a disproportionate number of new officers, because of their idealistic commitment. There are plenty in the Yeshivas, some of whom want to serve and some of whom don't. But tarring them all is both unfair and inaccurate. I am a strong believer in Torah study as are my rabbi son (Chail Avi) and student son (Tzanchanim). Your comments are an insult to them and the many thousands of others who serve. Just go to any Tekes and look for all the kipot there. It will be an eye-opener, I assure you!
