All fundamental change is accompanied by turmoil within those segments of society most effected by it - but the Ultra-Orthodox community in Israel must come to realize that they don't live in a vacuum or in a Shtetl in Eastern Europe in the 19th century, but rather in a modern, democratic State from which they receive financial support - without their reciprocating by sharing a citizen's burdens and responsibilities. Instead of inciting their disciples to revolt against the government, the Ultra-Orthodox leaders should encourage them to collaborate with the new laws, because their entire community will ultimately benefit from this change by being offered the opportunity to acquire skills that will enable them to join the work-force and eliminate a wide-spread swath of poverty within their ranks.
