Way In

Hear O Israel

A Haredi, or 'Ultra-Orthodox' Jew, shouting during a demonstration at Intel Corp's new electronic chip plant in Jerusalem in November. Their complaint was that work was continuing on the Sabbath. Haredim constitute 15% of Jews in Israel-Palestine, and the government expects that to be 25% in 2019. 60% of them live in poverty, declining regular jobs, according to the Bank of Israel. But special mobile phones have been developed for them, with no internet or photography, and calls costing 122 times as much on the Sabbath.
