The Central Bureau of Statistics has released its study of the Israeli workforce. 95% of secular men are employed, while only 44% of haredi men are. The vast majority of the unemployed haredim are kollel ‘students’ who rely on state welfare payments and other charity to survive. By contrast, 91% of Orthodox but non-haredi men (National Religious/Modern Orthodox) are employed. A similar breakdown is found among Israeli women.
