‘What’s Bad for Haredim is Bad for Universities’ says Haredi MK

JewishPress Logo

Haredi Knesset Member Moshe Gafni said he doesn’t mind if yeshivas are monitored to make sure those enrolled are learning so long as universities get the same treatment.

He had commented in the Maariv newspaper that students who do not actually learn day and night in yeshivas should serve in the army.

MK Gafni, answering by SMS a question from Independent Media Review and Analysis (IMRA) concerning his position on the use of technology to monitor attendance at yeshiva, stated he is against using monitoring systems at yeshivas unless they also are deployed in universities.

    I agree with Gafni. Yeshivas should start giving written exams on every subject every semester, as well as reports and homework assignments. Advanced Yeshivas should require a thesis paper. If you don't pass the exams, you're out.

    Did I mention entrance exams, and declaring a major?
