Israel’s High Court endorses IDF haredi draft, calls to freeze yeshiva funding

Sharing is Caring!

The High Court of Justice on Thursday night issued a blockbuster decision endorsing a universal draft, including the Haredi sector, starting April 1 as a matter of principle, while in practice deferring most enforcement until August 9.The decision largely accepted the recommendation of the Attorney-General’s Office on these issues, invoking a legal universal draft immediately but providing months of transition time for the institutions to adjust to the new reality.

As of Monday, some institutions or classes within institutions will already have their funds frozen, but on a larger scale, the freeze won’t take effect until August 9. Unsaid in the decision is that the next few months will also give the government an extension to potentially pass a new law, bypassing the current decision.

Furthermore, it remains unspoken that holding elections before August 9 could potentially freeze the entire process. Technically the decision was an interim order, such that the court also ordered a hearing before an expanded panel of nine justices to be scheduled sometime in May to resolve a variety of issues raised by its decision, which could lead to the decision being final.
