The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee decided Wednesday to recommend the Knesset plenum to extend the Tal Law for five more years. The Tal Law exempts haredim from army service but obligates them instead to serve one full year of national, non-military service. After this year of national service, options for which include working for Magen David Adom, the firefighters or at a local authority's social services department, the haredi man is permitted to join the work force.
