The draft law is one of the final subjects up for discussion between the Likud and UTJ negotiation teams.
The Chasidic section of the UTJ, Agudath Yisrael, has reportedly dropped its demand that a law is passed immediately eliminating all restrictions or quotas on the chareidi community, although the compromise being considered would still allow for the passage of a new fundamental law.
The law would establish the value of Torah study as the highest value of Jewish heritage while considering the significance of Torah study throughout Jewish history.
Before the 2023 budget is approved, a new and amended draft law will be finished in light of this law.
The Degel Hatorah faction has urged that the new draft bill be “agreed by all coalition members.”
According to Agudath Yisrael, the decision to temporarily abandon the draft law was made because the new fundamental law, which will be recognized as having inherent value by the state of Israel for the first time, is more significant than the draft law.
They said that the proposed date for the draft law would ensure that it does not contain sanctions or quotas for chareidi enlistment.
