Netanyahu Coalition Divided Over Ultra-Orthodox Draft | Israeli Court Orders Halt To Yeshiva Funds

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing disagreement among members of his coalition over the military exemption for ultra-Orthodox Jews. The government is divided over whether the state should continue to allow young Haredim men to study at religious seminaries instead of serving in the military. If the government abolishes the exemption, it risks a walkout from the ultra-Orthodox lawmakers. However, if Netanyahu lets the exemption stand, the secular members could withdraw. On March 28, the government announced that the coalition had not agreed on an extension to the exemption by April 1. Watch the video to find out more.
