If American Jews were more knowledgable of what is going on in Israel regarding the creeping values and cultural norms of segments of the haredi population (which will only get worse as their population grows disproportionally), the alienation would be much worse. American Jews still believe what they were taught in Hebrew School about Israel, which certainly was a slanted view. If American Jews knew that some Hareidm do not work and take welfare from the state provided by the taxes paid by those citizens that do work, how some haredi men curse and on occasion spit on and throw stones at little girls because they don't meet their subjective modest standard of dress, how child sexual abusers are protected by some haredi communities, and the victim is forbidden to go to the police, how some haredi rabbis prohibit children from receiving the needed secular eduction to be employable, how some haredi women are forced to sit in the back of the bus....I could go on and on. If American Jews were more knowledgable of what is going on....the alienation would be much worse.
