    Even if you "want Haredim to work", there is a way to implement that policy in ways that aren't based on some anti-clerical ideologiy, That the Haredi leadership knows the "value of work" is obvious, but they have a solution that has been in place for some time--job retraining centers financed by outside sources. Indeed, if I read this paper Haredim have entered the labor market already, albeit not at the pace Mr. Lapid would like it to be. Then too, if his intention is to change Haredim over into Secularists, by making them "work",, it's more likely the Israeli workplace will discover the influence of Haredi values that will cause Mr. Lapid to yell a Great Gevalt. Whatever happens, the Religious-Masorti-Haredi public is gaining on the Seculrist sector in ways that Mr. Lapid cannot control. They are neither arcane, or obscurantst, either, only "Jewish" about the way they opeate, which, is, after all the reason there is a State of Israel, no?

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
