A quiet revolution is occurring among Israel’s Haredi (ultra-Orthodox)
population, which numbers between 444,000 and 795,000, depending on which of
four different surveys you believe and on how you define “Haredi.”More
of them are serving in the army or in civic national service (in place of army
duty), studying, learning skills and finding jobs.
