Attorney General tells defense, education ministries to begin working to draft Haredim starting Monday

Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara has instructed the Defense Ministry and Education Ministry to begin drafting ultra-Orthodox yeshiva students into military service starting April 1. The defense establishment must inform the High Court of Justice by the end of the month about the steps it is taking to implement this. A cabinet resolution from June 2023, which ordered the military not to enforce conscription on young Haredi men, is set to expire tonight. The Education Ministry is also warned not to bypass the High Court order by increasing funding for yeshivas per student with a valid deferral.
