JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Right-wing Israeli news anchor Yinon Magal decided to buck the trend of anti-charedi sentiment which had been fueled in recent weeks by the High Court’s threats to cut off funding to yeshiva students who are eligible for the draft.

Magal, a secular person who does not wear a kippa, said that the sum of money for a yeshiva student comes to 395 NIS ($110 per month) and for a married avreich- 650 NIS ($190 per month). Altogether there are some 40000 yeshiva students and some 25000 married students.

He added that if the state funding stops, he himself will fund a yeshiva student and will initiate a campaign to fund all of the yeshiva students and avreichim. ” I believe that many will join me,” Magal concluded.

He stressed that “We will only fund those that are learning,[not those registered to avoid the draft] but they won’t let us destroy the world of Torah. Whoever is not learning should enlist but whoever is learning must be supported.”

Beautiful – if they can pull it off great. Leave the rest of society out of it. Don’t force others to pay for those that don’t want to serve.
I even think they should get a tax break on the money they feed the yeshivah boys.
