Aliya and IDF

Q&A from Rabbi David Bar-Hayim:


Dear Machon Shilo,
Is it the Rav’s opinion that Jews from outside Israel should make aliyah and enlist in the IDF at this time? Thank you.


In my view, all Jews should make aliya to EY.
Enlisting in the IDF, which should immediately be renamed THE ISRAELI ARMED FORCES, is a separate and involved question.
Much depends on the person asking the question.
