Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews, including hundreds of children, are protesting against attempts to draft members of the cloistered community into the Israeli military. The government is currently trying to find a formula to obligate ultra-Orthodox Jews to serve in the military before a court-determined Aug. 1 deadline. ? The current law largely exempts the community from military service. That infuriates many Israelis, since almost all are required to serve. Israel's Supreme Court ruled the law must be revised.
