  In 2012 the Israeli Supreme Court declared the exemption illegal on the grounds of inequality. The government proposed a bill in February, 2014 that would call for strict numbers of yeshiva students to be drafted into the military while still allowing a certain amount of exemptions. Those who refused to serve in the military could face jail time. Jerusalem, March 2nd, 2014.

  Until last year, the ultra-Orthodox had been exempt from serving in the Israeli military since the creation of the state, in 1949. The Haredim feel that this study is a contribution to Judaism that is equal to—if not greater than—serving in the Israeli army. They see compulsory military service as a form of religious persecution, denying them the right to practice and pulling them toward a more secular lifestyle.  Jerusalem, March 2nd, 2014.

 Flyers with protest slogans littered the streets, and young boys held up signs that declared in English and Hebrew, “The Israeli Government harshly persecutes and tramples observant Jews!” and “You created the problem by establishing the State of Israel. Don’t ask us to fix it by joining the IDF!” This second statement is evidence of a strong anti-Zionist sentiment held by some sections of the Haredi population, most notably Hasidic Jews.

 There were no fiery speeches and no chanting. Instead, the Haredim came in massive numbers to pray. The men carried out the Amidah, a standing prayer that’s recited silently.Bodies of all sizes swayed back and forth while their lips moved without noise. Jerusalem, March 2nd, 2014.

 Women were called on to partcipate in the protest as well, but they stood apart from the men, in segregated groups along the periphery of the crowd. Jerusalem, March 2nd, 2014.

 After the prayer service had concluded, religious music blared from racks of speakers that had been set up around the area. The mood was festive, and young Haredi men began to dance, arm-in-arm, in large circles. As the sun set, tens of thousands of Haredim crowded the streets. Jerusalem, March 2nd, 2014.

 Encouraged by their sheer numbers, the Haredim seemed confident that God would answer their prayers and that sooner or later the law forcing them inot the millitary would be repealed. Jerusalem, March 2nd, 2014.  For more about the protest, you can read my  article  that was published on Vice.
