The Ultra-Orthodox in Israel
One of the biggest challenges facing Israel in the coming years is to integrate the rapidly growing ultra-Orthodox minority into Israeli society and the economy. Yet the government of Israel lacks a comprehensive national plan to deal with all aspects of the problem, including education, defense, economics and identity.
The Ultra-Orthodox in Israel Program seeks to provide the government with research-based policy proposals for integrating Israel’s ultra-Orthodox into Israeli society while allowing them to preserve their unique identity. The program has developed a Master Plan for Haredi Employment, much of which has been adopted by the Israeli government, and plans to create similar blueprints for change in the realms of K-12 education, higher education and military service.
This program is generously supported by the Russell Berrie Foundation.
