Ultra Orthodox Israel - the internal threat (2008/ongoing)

The Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community of Israel today represents over 15% of the Jewish population and 25% of the school-aged population of the country.
With a birthrate 3 times higher than secular jews, Haredim's community is growing in its political importance into the Knesset while its religious strictness is deeply influencing the moves and choices of the once-secular Israeli State.

An ongoing project on a community that is considered by many the main internal threat to the stability of Israel.
