Halevi: IDF could establish yeshiva in the Jordan Valley to benefit Haredi troops

IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi says that the IDF could establish a new yeshiva for ultra-Orthodox recruits in the Jordan Valley that would allow them to engage in Torah study alongside their military responsibilities.

Speaking at a graduation event at the Israel National Defense College, Halevi says that the creation of the yeshiva was something “that can — and must be done.”

“Think of what could happen in war and in the economy when members of ultra-Orthodox society enlist,” he says.
