The Benefits and Costs of Employment Programs for the Haredim (Ultra-Orthodox) Implemented by the Kemach Foundation

By Lisa Cave, Hamutal Aboody

Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute, 2011

The Kemach foundation was established in 2007 in response to the large numbers of Haredi men that are not employed and rely on government and other sources of assistance to support their families. Many of these families live in poverty. The goal of the Kemach foundation is to assist the Haredim in integrating into the labor market so that they can become economically independent and support their families. The Kemach foundation funds programs independently and together with JDC-TEVET, a partnership between the JDC and the Government of Israel that develops innovative responses to the employment of disadvantaged job groups.
