The IDF will give a clear ultimatum to soldiers studying at Yeshivat Har Bracha, according to a letter obtained by Army Radio on Wednesday morning. "Soldiers will be given a period of 60 days to change to another hesder yeshiva," read the letter. "Any soldier that refuses to move to another yeshiva within the given period will leave the hesder track, and serve the full three years." The ultimatum came eight days after Defense Minister Ehud Barak announced his decision to remove the yeshiva from the hesder roster, in response to Har Bracha head Rabbi Eliezer Melamed voicing support for insubordination in the army.
