Employment for Haredim (Ultra Orthodox Jews) in Israel
Over 70% of ultra-orthodox men and 50% of ultra-orthodox women are unemployed. This research proposes to address this structural issue in a number of ways, including:
- To revise ‘The Tal Law’ (which attempted to mandate military service for ultra-orthodox citizens) into a citizens’ service program, as a means for ultra-orthodox to begin to participate in the workforce
- To direct resources to ultra-orthodox owned small businesses.
