racial profiling?

racial profiling?

this calls for a law suit but Israel doesn’t work that way… in some ways they are just like the NKVD

Come on! A little sympathy, the poor girl just spent two weeks in jail and this is what you’re thinking about?

From the pictures it seems pretty clear that she is a regular Lubavitcher girl, not really sure what the claim of the IDF was to be honest

let’s see you try to get a force together to defend your country, while at the same time being conscious of “racial profiling”!

Their claim wasn’t necessarily based on the way she is dressed…. though I do have to agree with you, that in that aspect you’re right

Why is this a good thing? She clearly is not as religious as she is trying to come across and clearly she’s using religious as an excuse to not serve the country she greatly benifits from. Don’t understand how as a Jew you don’t follow the laws of the land when that’s in the Torah and as well she could do sheruit leumi like every other religious girl if in fact she is so religious. Do your time like everyone else and this does not need to happen.

Sheruit Leumi
Guest
Sheruit Leumi

Sherut Leumi is forbidden by Torah just like the army. It is in the category of giving up your life rather than do. All Haredi Rabanim hold that way.

Thank you protesters who stood up for a bas yisroel. Protests help. We must all start voting both here and in Israel for those who stand up for Torah values. Women don’t belong in the army. We need to get rid of all the democrats here in America and in israel elect Torah value candidates.

Girls in the army?

Acc to Torah, Jewish girls shouldnt be inducted w men. Even non observant ones

I agree with #9 why is this celebrated

She clearly is using chasidishe stuff to bluff. Tomorrow you will find her hanging with some boys at the local bar. Go do sheirut leumi – fake chasidishe!

What makes you say such a thing? She clearly comes across as a religious Jew!

The Rebbe was against women serving in the army. Period.

First of all, she readily admits that there was a time she was OTD. So the army’s position is that it’s very convenient that now she’s frum when just a short while ago she was OTD. Second of all, what’s wrong with her doing sheirut le’umi?

Obstacle course

Obstacle course

What an obstacle course the Israeli military has to deal with. I feel much more sympathetic to the Israeli government in this case than the religious world, I am American BT.

Sherut leumi is the very minimum
Guest
Sherut leumi is the very minimum

I don’t doubt she’s religious, but there’s no reason charedi girls shouldn’t do some type of national service. Working in a nursing home or with disabled children or some other type of chessed work IS fundamental to Torah and sherut leumi.

Voting for haraidi parties means no shleimas Haaretz they would sell out in a second. The only parties that one can vote for is bait yehudi or likud.

Sherut Leumi is irrelevant
Guest
Sherut Leumi is irrelevant

Whether sherut leumi is permitted or not, it’s irrelevant, because it was not an option for her; they were trying to draft her not into sherut leumi but into the army, which is forbidden LECHOL HADE’OS. It’s exactly like making her eat treif or break shabbos, or do other things that chayalot are notorious for. Even if she’d volunteered for sherut leumi it would not have helped her a tiny bit. The thing is, there are many women who were always secular, remain secular, and have no intention of ever being anything but secular, who claim to be religious in… Read more »

Voting for Likud means no shleimis Haaretz. Fact is Likud destroyed yamit and gush Katif. You need strong chareidi people like Eli Yishai. If we don’t stop the public chillul shabbos and gay parades there won’t be shleimis Haaretz. The Torah warns us that the land will vomit you out if you violate Torah commandments.

Nice Touch with the mustache in the car pic!

in all seriousness though, the Israeli military is not something to take lightly when they see you in pictures that suggest you are not behaving like the person you portray, they will not suddenly believe you that you had a change of heart they don’t need to know her personally and their job is to call a fraud a fraud In this case she had ample opportunity to settle this but chose to take a risk and leave the country with her family I don’t want to judge anyone but in Israel there are consequences for things you do even… Read more »

Did sheirut leumi exist in the 80's & 90's?
Guest
Did sheirut leumi exist in the 80's & 90's?

Just curious, because I’ve seen the Rebbe’s guidance used to promote various things that had no relevance in the 80’s and early 90’s.
