Right-wing activists formed teams that will visit hesder yeshivot throughout the country in the coming days to urge yeshiva students to put an end to their arrangement with the IDF. Hesder yeshivas combine Talmudic studies with military service.
Ynet learned that prominent rightist figures are behind the move, such as Baruch Marzel. Marzel said, "It needs to be understood that the military has much more to lose than the hesder yeshivas. There is a huge lack of manpower and motivated fighters are an obvious need of the IDF." (Efrat Weiss)
