Haredim B’Akademia


General Background

Ultra-Orthodox Israelis who attend college or university are more than twice as likely as members of the general public to drop out: 46% of haredi men and 28% of haredi women abandon their academic studies (compared to 20% of men and 12% of women in the general population).

Target Population

Ultra-Orthodox men and women

Vision and goals

The program seeks to create a large, high-quality pool of academically-trained haredim, who will contribute to the socio-economic welfare of the haredi community and of the state of Israel.
