    Haredim seem to fit in better than in provinical Tel Aviv. Maybe its because they coulld learn to be as business like--for instance, more often than not there are strict dress codes at many firms that require men and women to "look the part", and not imagine that they are in some fashion show when they arrive at work. Mind you, when I go to my bank the men wear white shirts and dark slacks, likewise the women dress "for success". That is only one "concession" the Israel business world might have to make, but somehow a Israeli young man or young woman in London or Frankfurt might have to "suffer" the regimentation of the business work place there. Yeah, Haredim would fit in, if the Israel work place took their cue from Hutz l'Aretz, rather be play the Secular Israeli game.
