The organizers of the anti-Israeli government demonstrations will direct their upcoming action on the chareidi community and host an “equality day” to call for equality in the workplace and military service.
The protest movement leaders now want to target Torah students who don’t join the IDF or the workforce after multiple demonstrations against judicial reforms.
The planned protest in Bnei Brak has been canceled, but other protests will still occur throughout Israel. Instead, on Thursday at 11 p.m., tech workers will demonstrate at the Sharona compound in Tel Aviv, while medical professionals will demonstrate at noon in Beersheva, Kibbutz members at 3:30 p.m. in Tzemach near Kinneret, and students and staff from the Weitzman Institute in Rehovot will demonstrate at 5 p.m.
The heads of the yeshiva have ordered all students to stay in the yeshiva building until the last protester has departed the area where the Kol Torah yeshiva in Bayit V’Gan will be protesting at 5:30 PM in a march dubbed “mothers wearing army berets.”
Evening events are scheduled in Tel Aviv and other locations to promote equality in the armed forces.
Most chareidi parties have let the budget pass before the government concentrates on the newly updated draft law. Hence the administration is not currently supporting it.
