The article correctly points out "demographic" challenges to the Israeli hi-tech industry. Outside Israel, Chareidi Jews are very much involved at all levels of hi-tech and are fantastic contributors to the industry. By not cooperating with each other in Israel, both the Chareidi community and the hi-tech industry lose. Older employees with much experience are also kept out of the industry in Israel. There is so much bad software written by youngsters these days that the oldies would never release into the wild - but the young managers just don't understand the value that older people can offer. Hi-tech, as a career, has a very short expected lifespan. This problem exists outside Israel, too, but is more severe in youth-oriented Israel.
