Jerusalem - While thousands assembled in Meah Shearim last Thursday to celebrate the homecoming of a man who just completed an 8 month prison sentence for participating in an illegal demonstration against the draft while filling a conditional sentence; a celebration of a different kind took place at the Kotel: The induction ceremony of new Chareidi IDF soldiers who will be joining the Netzach Yehuda Battalion, commonly known as Nachal Chareidi.

The induction ceremony was preceded by a collective Siyum Masechta by the new soldiers. The event was attended by company commander Captain David Teier and regiment commander of the Brigade Training Center Lieutenant Colonel Uri Levy. Teier is an alumnus of Yeshivas Maor HaTorah where he learned prior to his recruitment. 

In the course of his service, he completed a squad commanders’ course and officers’ course and was promoted to battalion commander. He has now formally accepted command of the company of new recruits that have just been inducted into Netzach Yehuda.

Addressing the soldiers, Teier expressed that, “It’s important to know how to integrate the safety of the Jewish nation and her spirituality. This is the essence of our Brigade, and this is why, today, right before the induction, it is so significant that you are completing a Masechta.”

The induction ceremony took place immediately after the Siyum.  Instead of the traditional, “Ani nishba—I swear,” the new recruits shouted, “Ani matzhir—I affirm.”  The ceremony concluded with a spirited rendition of the song “Ani ma’amin b’biat haMashiach.”

Nahal Haredi Foundation Rabbi David Fuchs, who escorts the soldiers throughout the duration of their army service said, “Today we have the merit of sanctifying the Name of heaven. B’ezrat Hashem, we shall continue integrating army service with Torah studying.”

Torah observant Jews are not impressed. Ceremonies like these is only a trap for other frum Jews. Its like dunking in the Mikvah to get pure and at the same time holding a mouse in the hand.

I do in general praise the tough work and protection that the ZAHAL provides, (as if they need my approval) but In this particular case I view it as a plain & simple PR stunt from the higher echelons, to encourage Frum boys to join the army, I'm not going in to the debate as to whether or not a frum boy should or shouldn't join the army, I'll leave it to others to decide,
& to this captain I say Mazel tov, כמוך ירבו בישראל

These charedi soldiers made a siyum today. You cursed them that they would "inevitably fail".
They learn Torah, you curse like Bilam.
Your blind hatred has turned you into sonei Yisroel. I feel sorry for you.
As someone that actually knows charedi bochurim, I can say with full confidence that failure is not inevitable. Even with your chet on them, many of them are going fine in their yiddishkeit. Better than a sonei Yisroel Like you, that's for sure.

BRAVO! As someone who has experienced rockets, sirens, safe rooms etc, these soldiers -ALL our soldiers - are keeping these lowlives alive. The likes of #6 are cowards & a disgrace. How they even THINK they're frum is astounding. There is a special place in Gehennom with their names on. I too know Chareidi soldiers - brothers, actually. With full beards, tzitzit, the works. They daven, learn, are strict with Kashrut (only Mehadrin), fast, etc. What has #6 and his fellow thugs done to protect us? Learn a bit? Emphasis being on "a bit." They are leeches who suck the blood of frum soldiers.

Yes, that is when Jews protect people like you and give their life. You need a mental refuah sheleim

the article starts "Jerusalem - While thousands assembled in Meah Shearim last Thursday to celebrate the homecoming of a man who just completed an 8 month prison sentence for participating in an illegal demonstration against the draft while filling a conditional sentence".
This is not quite true. he sat for 8 months for assulting a police officer, not for demonstarting.
Israel allows everyone to express their opinion, but keep your hands to yourself!!

You should have a different pseudonym namely a true Meshimed . I close my eyes and I see the trucks full of children leaving the Ghetto Lodz for Treblinka and I read your stupidity it is a rachmonis for klal yisroel. You are not fit to be called a Yid
