More Haredis are prioritizing work and education over marriage

Here's an interesting article stating that Haredis of a younger generation are pursuing higher education and career studies before marriage:
Young ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel are increasingly putting off marriage, potentially presaging a long-term drop in the birthrate of the fast-growing community, according to a think tank’s annual report.

The trend has been particularly pronounced among women, with the number of single ultra-Orthodox females aged 20-29 jumping from 20 percent to 33% over the last decade, according to figures from the Israel Democracy Institute.

[...] Although there is no single factor seen as responsible for the declining rate of young marriages among young Haredim, observers of the community who spoke to Haaretz pointed to an increase in the number of ultra-Orthodox Jews who work and pursue college degrees, as well as technological changes such as dating applications.
They're doing the right thing, and that can lead to improvements in their community.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • 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.
