Background

With Israel’s ultra-Orthodox population growing to 900,000, the need for employment solutions has never been more pressing. The Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics (ICBS) forecasts that the ultra-Orthodox population of Israel will number 1.1 million by 2019. As only 45% of ultra-Orthodox men and 71% of women are employed, 57% of this high-potential community lives below the poverty line.

Most families live on the women’s one salary wage with multiple children. The ICBS reports that less than 2,700, ultra-Orthodox men study in higher education facilities.
