The discussions allegedly unsuccessful when Shas rejected to accept an contract that involved terminology that motivated haredim to work and to study for educational levels.

Shmarya, if you want other publications to use your pieces, you need to start proofreading them properly, as I've pointed out before.

Lets see. I write for a half dozen important Jewish publications and the Daily Beast.

I've been quoted and cited in hundreds of newspapers, profiled in several including the NY Times, profiled ob NY 1, and used as an on-air expert by CNBC.

But you're most definitely correct. If I don't proofread myself more carefully, no one will ever publish me.

The headline to this story employs the phrase "Working Haredim"; surely that is an oxymoron?

I am kinda suspicious of the concept of New Haredim.

They are simply very religious Da'atim, particularly ba'alei tshuvot. Very few of the core Haredim would move to this "New Haredi" category.

haredim who work for a living, attend college, and/or serve in the IDF.

So that makes altogether three votes?

To quote the article, "A new survey shows that this segment of the haredi population has a very high rate of dissatisfaction haredi parties and their leaders, and according to Ha'aretz those political leaders now fear the vote of those new haredim will go elsewhere as a result."

The fact that this group of enlightened Haredim "has a very high rate of dissatisfaction (with) haredi parties and their leaders" shows there is a price to pay for marginalizing women, for discouraging Haredim to work and for making meaningless proclamations and fatwas whenever a rabbi's mood move him to do so. For once, a group of Haredim emerge who can use their own common sense and good critical judgment!! There is hope yet!!
