1. outraged
Aviva   (05.01.17)
THIS is the most inspiring, meaningful article you could come up with in honor of Yom Hazikaron?! If yes, then this is an obsession beyond anything I can imagine. As an ultra-orthodox woman (wig,duty length black skirt, husband in a black hat) who is a teacher in an ultra-orthodox school, spent yesterday's class talking about yom hazikaron, the debt we owe the people who sacrificed everything so that we can be here. I told a few specific stories of specific soldiers and their families, about some of the soldiers who were killed since last yom hazikaron and some who are living with permanent disabilities. While your readership can send 100 replies attacking me, as they assume that my husband has not served, I don't believe that has anything to do with my point here. You have chosen, as a way of honoring the memory of our heroes, to perpetuate division in Am Yisrael. SHAME!!
2. Agree with Aviva

I am also ultra-orthodox/haredi, and we very much do respect the fallen soldiers. My husband learns in Yeshiva and they learn and daven for these fallen soldiers. Google to see what HaRav Ovadia Z"L said of fallen soldiers, they are in such a high place in Heaven.
Shame on you ynetnews for focusing on the divisions amongst Jews and stereotypes instead of the unity of Jews.
