Top Rabbis Declare: No Compromise on Haredi Draft

Two of the most senior haredi rabbis in Israel, Aharon Leib Shteinman and Shmuel Auerbach, have both declared over the past two days that there is “no room for compromise” on the issue of haredi enlistment.

Their pronouncements came after reports last week that Shteinman, the spiritual leader of the haredi community, was not opposed to the principles of one particular plan for increasing haredi enlistment to national service programs that had been presented to him.

In a public pronouncement printed in haredi newspapers on Wednesday, Auerbach wrote that he was joining the call for prayer against “the decree to uproot the Torah,” and initiatives to “harm” the status of yeshiva students.
