The Institute’s study on haredi household economies aims to shed light on the way these households balance expenditure and income.
As is well known, haredi families typically have a large number of children and their income is low relative to non-haredi families.
The study aims to glean a better understanding of the challenges and coping methods of haredi families with this reality, with emphasis on spending patterns at different times of the year and different stages of life, while addressing the diversity within the community.
The study aims to present the solutions provided by the haredi community, at the communal and family level. This study may contribute much to policy concerning poverty, employment and more.
