Israel Air Force Chief Rabbi Lt.-Col. Moshe Ravad apologized on Thursday for publicly criticizing the army protocol obligating religious soldiers to attend ceremonies that feature women’s singing.

Ravad, who resigned from the “Shahar” program which aims to integrate haredi men into the army, sent a letter to his commanders and Head of the IDF Manpower Directorate Maj.-Gen. Orna Barbivai asking that he be allowed to return to his role.
