Haredi and secular Jews rarely interact

According to a recent survey by Gesher:
The survey, called the “Israeli Unity Index” and published Wednesday by Gesher, an organization that aims to build bridges between the religious and secular in Israel, found that 45 percent of haredim had no interaction at all with secular Jews. One-fifth of secular Jews reported having little interaction with haredim. It was the first such survey by the group.

On a scale of 1 to 5, with one being the lowest, secular Israelis gave a 2 rating, on average, as to whether they would like having a haredi family member. Haredi respondents rated the idea of having a secular family member even lower, at 1.7. Respondents who rated themselves “traditional” or religious had higher rates of interaction with both haredi and secular Jews.
From what I'm reading here, it sounds as though Haredis are less enthusiastic about certain interactions than seculars are. The most valid guess is that they dislike the influence of the non-Haredi world, unlike most simpler religious types who have little or no issues, and remain religious traditional no matter what they think of secular culture.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
