The story goes that David Ben-Gurion exempted yeshiva students from army service because they reminded him of the world of his grandfather. They were few in number when Israel was young, a remnant of an old-fashioned way of life. So certain was Ben-Gurion that in just one more generation that particular Jewish way of Life would be a think of the past. Rabbi Yael Splansky – Sermon: March 29, 2014.
