Soldiers in IDF Make Siyyum

By Gldmeier @gldmeier

Hmmmm.. a group of religious female soldiers, ina  program through Midreshet Lindenbaum meshing Torah studies for women with army service, have just completed a grueling 5 month army course. They celebrated the completion of the course, as soldiers sometimes do, but in a different way than how most soldiers celebrated.

These female soldiers celebrated their successful completion of the course by completing a couple of tractates of Gemara and making a siyyum. Some finished Gemara Brachos, and others finished Gemara Chagiga.

So, does army service mean you also cannot do any learning during the duration of the army service? Does serving in the army for 2 or 3 years mean that for those 2 or 3 years learning Torah will not be possible or allowed?
If these girls can do it, the yeshiva boys can't?
Is this better or worse then girls putting on tefillin?
