Economic Hardship and Gainful Employment in Haredi Society in Israel: an Insider's Perspective

Economic Hardship and Gainful Employment in Haredi Society in Israel: an Insider's Perspective

Abstract:

The author of this study, Rabbi Bezalel Cohen is a graduate of the Lithuanian yeshiva world. From an insider’s perspective and through his involvement in advancing employment in ultra-orthodox society, he offers an analysis of the inherent economic deficiency and its root causes, chief among which is the issue of employment. The analysis raises a series of conceptual and inherent barriers in ultra-orthodox society, which  impede the transition of Haredi men, hitherto engaged in Torah study, into the labor market.
