The Haredi Institute Podcast – Episode 2

Welcome to the second episode of the Haredi Institute podcast. This week CEO Udi Ben-Dror met Knesset Member Yitzhak Pindrus (Torah Judaism), who previously served as the CEO of the institute, for a fascinating conversation.

What did we talk about?

  • Why do we need a Haredi research institute? How can a member of the Knesset, a mayor, or a senior official in a government office use the institute’s capabilities and data?
  • Why does Haredi society need a long-term strategic plan?
  • Is the dream of the Zionist melting pot fading away? How do you live together and apart? How can one change the public debate of today?
  • In a recent study we found that 48% of Haredi men in Jerusalem work, another 20% would like to work, but for all sorts of reasons are unable to find a job. How can the new government use this to increase employment rates?
  • How can we solve the housing problem in Haredi society? Why is it in the interest of the secular public that housing projects for the Haredi be promoted?
