United Torah Judaism strongly criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's announcement that if an alternative to the Tal Law is not found, beginning August 1, ultra-Orthodox Torah scholars of enlistment age will be considered in evasion of military service under the Security Service Law.
The faction issued a statement Monday demanding that the "prime minister honor the coalition agreement as it is written and pass in the Knesset a law that will allow the continuing existence of the world of the Torah and the preservation of the status of Torah scholars."
