chareidimNearly 1,000 people attended a Yerushalayim ceremony on Wednesday honoring charedi civil service volunteers. During the ceremony, five volunteers were awarded with honorary plaques for their outstanding service, reports Ynet.

Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu sent a recorded message to the volunteers: “You are the best proof that the Israeli society has a common denominator. You managed to find the middle ground between your lifestyle and belief on the one hand, and your contribution to society on the other hand.¬†Thanks to your service, your communities are undergoing a profound social change. Instead of separatism and alienation, we see a desire to connect and become an integral part of Israeli society.”

Head of Civil Service Administration, Minister Uri Orbach, gave a speech at the ceremony.
