Post Atzeres Statement from Gedolim


atzeres-tefillah1Following the atzeres tefillah in Yerushalayim today, a declaration on behalf of the gedolei Torah was read out loud.

The statement says: “The gathering demands from the authorities that it not pass any law that hurts Torah students in any way and forces them to leave their studies, and even [intimidates] to throw them in prison, which would constitute the uprooting of the Torah and a desecration of God’s name.”

The statement adds: “No yeshiva student should join the army in any way whatsoever, and they should not give in to enticements or penalties, and should not cooperate in any way with army programs.”
