Lapid: Haredim will soon be able to enter workforce without fear of IDF service

Some 20,000 haredim will receive notices in the coming months that they are free to leave their institutions of Torah learning and enter the workforce without having to worry about serving in the army, Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid wrote in a message to his supporters Sunday.
Lapid said he hoped that the recommendations of the Peri Committee, after they are passed into law, will enable 70 percent of the haredim to serve the country in one way or another in three years.
He mocked the United Torah Judaism MKs who protested the passage of the Peri Committee reccomendations, suggesting that UTJ MK Meir Porush, who handcuffed himself to a Knesset lectern, should never hasve been unlocked.
