Father's Lament for Son Who Should've Served - One Ultra-Orthodox Father Sees Good Side of Israeli Draft
This is a really interesting article written by a Charedi Baal Teshuva who is upset that his son is not serving in the army. One of the most telling quotes is:
my son never decided — it was never on his radar screen — not to go into
the army. That decision was made for him by me, almost 20 years ago.
This is so true, no one is making a conscious decision today to dedicate himself to learning, it is just expected and the thing to do in Charedi society
That’s NOT Self Sacrifice!
This is written by a Charedi girl who went to the army and kept up her religious standards.
