Israel needs a bigger IDF to ensure its security and prevent enemy invasions, according to an editorial. The country needs more personnel, including Haredim, to patrol and guard its borders. The IDF has recommended changes to extend mandatory service and increase the age limit for serving in the reserves. The haredi population, which makes up about 13% of Israel, needs to help secure and protect the borders. The editorial calls for courageous rabbis to encourage haredi men to join the army and defend the country's physical survival.
