Yesterday in lower Manhattan, 30,000 (organizers say 50,000) Haredi Jews gathered to protest an Israeli government proposal to remove the exemption ultra-Orthodox have from military service. Jane Eisner, editor of the Jewish Daily Forward, discusses the protest and the larger context of the ultra-Orthodox in Israel and the US today.
