The Lubavitch girl who has been in IDF Prison 6 for about two weeks has finally been recognized as ‘chareidi’ by the IDF and released from incarceration, as she is no longer required to serve in the military.
According to a report from Kol Berama Radio host Mendy Rizel, the military finally accepted Rivka Hadjadj’s affidavit that she leads a chareidi lifestyle and is therefore not obligated to serve in the army.
The IDF apparently checked a bit deeper and learned that Rivka was not lying but is indeed frum and does indeed lead a chareidi lifestyle.
She was arrested and remained in jail for refusing to be drafted, and now, B’chasdei Hashem, following many protests on her behalf, she has been released.
