A month ago I attended a symposium to commemorate the disaster victims was dedicated to the subject of women in Israeli society. In the concluding phase of the teenagers approached this question: is Israel ready to pay the price for falling
Prisoner of?

Before talking about epilepsy, I replied, that Israeli society ask herself how she puts up with such large classes of non-conscripted for military service and what are the implications of widespread and disturbing phenomenon.

Indeed, as a very important way in opening positions to women (92% of all subjects in the IDF), another prominent trend, violates and concerns that almost half of women have the draft are conscripted for military service, the vast majority of the religious statement background.

The public discourse often engage in men who do not enlist for his “teachings”
While the number of women who are conscripted annually against the backdrop of religious belief — double that. The reason for the large scale lies in the fact that women can, pursuant to the law, an exemption makes is based on a statement of religious life. Unfortunately, many young State on
Datiotan although the visitor lives far away. An important activity has been the legislative should ensure that exempt religious service will be provided only to build their faith antagonistic to religion justifies
It.

As part of a fundraising effort for the army, which Al doors all sectors of Israeli society, we work to encourage recruitment and significant service among the religious.
1,500 religious Airmen annually are tailoring testimony won, as well as research.
Carried out and shows that many of the girls indicate that contrary to prejudices, there is no contradiction between military service to maintain religious faith.

IDF being militiamen, reflects all levels of society and is an important responsibility for integration from look of joining of all populations.
The IDF’s ability to withstand a variety of missions and etgrio relies on women’s service, and he needs to capabilities and to each of the nswas facing challenges to open.

Women’s service maintains the value of equality between the sexes, yet still remains a long way in this area as well. Full and maximum utilization of women in the army is the right move not only ethical, but perspective is essential for implementing Mission in maintaining state security. In recent years we have service options for women, also in fighting and fighting and supporters among the most challenging technology.

In these days when the issue is equality in public discourse, we make the necessary preparations to receive thousands of new recruits to the army as part of this task is for us the challenge to ensure that integration of the ultra-Orthodox won’t hurt instead of meaningful and open service channels. All of our challenge will be to ensure that, as an army in a democracy, will retain its character and essence, as mosaic, and the power inherent in the asset.
