Ben Gurion Says Religious Girls Must Do Military Service

A delegation of rabbis today visited Premier David Ben Gurion and appealed to him against the implementation of the law for military service for religious girls. The Premier told the rabbis that the law will be implemented in a manner that “no mother will shed any tears” over the fact that her daughter is performing military duties.
