The two Rabbis of the Chabad shul down the street from me here in the US have jobs - one is a used furniture dealer and the other is a plumber. The wife of one runs a day care center in their home, the wife of the other started a bakery. To me, these are real Torah scholars in the historic Jewish tradition. The tens of thousands of full-time Torah scholar haredim in Israel, living off the sweat of the taxpayers, are cult of loafers and frauds. Israel needs US-style "workfare", at a minimum - those refusing secular jobs offered by the state get no public assistance and no voting rights. Period.
