After Yisrael Beiteinu announced it was against the draft reform and that unless amendments are introduced it would vote against the bill, a source with Habayit Hayehudi said that the "Bennett-Lapid alliance has brought about a balanced plan that recognizes, for the first time in the State's history, the value of Torah studies."

- Haredi MK: IDF draft reform 'detached from reality'
- New bill: Haredi recruitment at age 21; 1,800 exemptions
The source added that said alliance will help integrate haredim in the job market and that "religious Zionism has returned to serve as a bridge between all portions of society."
According to MK Shaul Mofaz, the Peri Committee outline is "good. I'm please to have been a part in raising this issue to the agenda. The plan I devised with former MK Yohanan Plesner was the basis of the entire coalition negotiation at the end of which this government was formed. I hope the outline passes Knesset legislation."
