The drive to increase work participation in the haredi community took another step forward Tuesday with the inauguration of a new course for summarizing US real estate contracts. The project is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor and outsourcing company CityBook Services and will enroll 40 women in the course at CityBook's offices in Modi'in Illit. The ministry said that following the four-month intensive course all the women will be employed by CityBook. CityBook, owned by American haredi millionaire Yosef Rosenbaum, already employs 150 English speaking haredi women at its facilities in Betar Illit and Modi'in Illit. The company is part of a drive in these areas to position the haredi community as an attractive alternative in the outsourcing market.
