    You can organize protests at the Israeli consulate in nyc. On second ave and 42 st. Not a difficult thing to do. You need protests in israel as well. Contact meah shearim and Beth shemesh guys. They know how. Why are people sleeping. A girl is forbidden to join army.

    The law is the law you can’t pick and choose when you decide to be religious. she can do many things in the army such as shiut leumi which thousands of frum girls do every year.

    Just wondering

    She was OTD for a while. But now she is frum again. Had she pleased her case before that rabbanut who can vouch that they accept her as frum, the same way they examine overseas converts?
    Because the army knows of her fallen past but refuses to accept that she did table teshuva

    A jewish girl is forbidden to join an army. No rabbi said it’s ok unless they are reform.

    As far as i know sherut leumi is not in the army. It’s an alternative for religious girls, we’re they volunteer at different places instead of going to the army.

    Did they use Peleg to protest? I hope not

    Sherut leumi is not linked to the army.
    a religious girl is not required to serve in the idf by the israeli law
    Please do some research before your post a comment

    I would like to see you being so self righteous if this were your daughter.

    I’m sorry that she’s locked up, but she knows she didn’t get an exemption. She’s on the”DO NOT FLY” radar so it wasn’t smart to try to leave.
    Warning to other kids. Going OTD may seem cool not, but it will haunt you years from now when you come to your senses.
    So get help, but don’t destroy your life just because it’s the easier path to take.

    Girls in the army

    Girls are in the army of Hashem. Best way to protest: sign up more girls in Tzivos Hashem and help them do missions. They are fighting by incarcerating her physically. We must respond spiritually.

    It’s a crime in Israel to be a military desertire

    Because a lot of false claims of religious exemptions and new laws it’s harder to get free pass and not to serve the army …, yes army does not know but check all social media , Facebook, Instagram etc to check the background nowadays …
    So I’m sorry that she is in military jail but she knew that she has a prohibition to leave Israel 🇮🇱 without right papers from the army …

    Family need to hire a lawyer now to get her out

    Amazing

    They have room in jail for a jewish girl who had a hard life which caused her to be OTD a while. But Arab murderers are released by the hundreds. This is a vicious anti Jewish government. This whole leadership is obsessed with emulating the lowest classes of goyim in the west. A revolution is needed. Now there are new elections and every religious Jew should vote to increase the power of religious parties. When will Israel become a jewish country and stop with their copying big time of antiTorah behavior. Jewish girls need to become mothers not gun toting… Read more »

    Isn’t anyone thinking what a chilul HaShem this is! There is definitely ways to get around her going to the army that don’t include protesting and dividing up yidden!
    I obviously don’t know the system but I do know that there is options for shomer Shabbos girls and there is definitely a more peaceful way to deal with this
    I’m disappointed that everyone’s first response is one of fighting

    :-( may she have a geulah soon!

    Get rid of all religious exemptions

    No reason a not religious person has to risk their life to protect a religious person’s life. All should serve. No daughter is more valuable than the other.

    What's the problem?

    That’s the law. Because she’s frum then we have to protest? Gimme a break.

    Response to 22

    The army has been sending home many seasoned soldiers. They have too many soldiers. Today with technology the army does not need so many soldiers. The only reason they want to draft Yeshiva boys is to corrupt the religious youth. Training a Yeshiva boy costs double than others. So why send away trained soldiers and get ones that will be twice as expensive to train. We can not trust the secularist running the government with their sinister ideas. The army I had become a liberal brainwashing indoctrination center.

    No girls should be serving in the army.

    Only Israel and North Korea have forced conscription for girls.

    It is clearly against Halacha and therefore all Rabonim forbid it for all girls regardless if they are religious or not.

    The government only agreed to waive the demand with regards to the religious ones.
