1. Congrats on making Aliyah! In order to get your Ptor you need to go to the Rabbanut with your Teudat Zehut. You should go to the Rabbanut in your city.
  2. When you get there, explain to them that you are here to get a Ptor (exemption) from the IDF because you are religious. They will probably ask you if you keep Shabbat and Kashrut, and maybe a few other simple questions. Then they will stamp your Hatzharah (declaration). Make sure to bring 2 passport pictures. There is a 56 NIS processing fee, which must be paid by credit card.
  3. Once you get confirmation from Ori your next step is to take your Hatzharah to Lishkat Hagiyus (recruitment office): Rashi St 103, Jerusalem. Be sure to go to the Lishkat Hagiyus in or closest to the city where your official address is registered on your Teudat Zehut. When you get there, tell them that you are here to get your Ptor from the army because you are religious. It is likely that they will also ask you questions. Once they have processed your request, make sure to give them a reliable address to send the official Ptor to you, it may take over a month to get it. Now there is an expedited process for Lone Bnot Sherut that should take up to two weeks.
