Rabbis use radio to get messages to Israeli soldiers

Rabbis from all Jewish religious movements are using Army Radio to get messages to soldiers,Arab48.com reported.

The rabbis are worried about the army’s measures which force soldiers not to comply with religious practices such as growing a beard.

Soldiers are being encouraged to email any questions they may have to the rabbis, who have promised to keep all the information confidential.

Speaking anonymously, a military rabbi said: “A lot of soldiers have questions and their questions remain unanswered. Therefore, we want to do our best to answer all religious questions and help the soldiers with any problem they encounter.”

Meanwhile, the rabbis publicly called for the soldiers, religious and non-religious, to turn to them in case the army “crosses any redline”.
