Top court again delays deadline for government to pass new Haredi enlistment law

The High Court of Justice accepts the new government’s request to delay conscripting ultra-Orthodox Israelis into the military, again postponing the matter.

The government will now have until January 2022 to pass new legislation formally exempting Haredi yeshiva students from military enlistment.

The previous law was stuck down in 2017, but the High Court has since granted repeated delays to the goverment on the matter.
