    Very impressed - approach the problem and offer a solution without name calling or slandering the Haredi population. This is very rare in today's media lynch of Haredim. The first thing that should be done is changing child stipends. Instead of 165 shekels a month per kid to everyone (inlcuding those who make 30K shekels a month, make it a tax benefit, that you only get if you work. So that if one of the 2 Haredi parents in a family works, they can get it credited to their pay check each month. It should also only go to people who make a certain amount or less depending on how many kids they have - there is no reason to give it as a hand out or to give it to those who don't need it. By cutting the amount of people receiving it, the actual stipend coupld be more than 165 per kid to those who actually need it - bumping this to 200 per kid for someone who makes 4,000 shekels a month could be the difference of buying milk or not, while to half of Israelis the whole 165 is not even noticed. because they already make more than they need. Folow this with steadily reducing the number of kollel students finded by the government over 3-5 years while training haredim to join the workforce, we will save tons of money better spent on education, health care, defense, or paying police more than minimum wage, while encouraging people to join the workforce because they get nothing if they don't - the benefits to the economy would be incredible.
