Do Chareidim Get Too Much?

Ultra orthodox jews walk by a street full of "Sukkot" (temporary dwelling), in the religious neighborhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem on October 10, 2016. Sukkot commemorates the Israelites 40 years of wandering in the desert and a decorated hut or tabernacle (sukka) is erected outside religious households as a sign of temporary shelter.

A survey taken among five hundred Jewish Israelis aged 18 and higher found that whether one believes chareidim get more than their share of the government cake depends on one’s political stance. Asked whether they thought that chareidi funding came at the expense of Israel’s needier “periphery” communities, 89% of Zionist Camp and 87% of Yesh Atid voters answered yes. Among Kulana and Meretz supporters the figure was 81%.

Only 37% of Bayit Yehudi people agreed with the proposition and 41% opposed it.

Regarding the money given to settlements, 58% of all respondents answered that they thought that “settlements are subsidized at the cost of periphery communities” and even among Likud supporters the figure was 42%.

  1. DIvide and conquer. Create artificial sectors within the Jewish nation, while the judenrat elites from all parties are the ones getting the spoils.

  2. Yet we’re spending millions on giving free medical and other care to Enemy Syrians! That’s who is getting too much taxpayer money as well as the continued electricity and water to the PA and Hamas who haven’t paid up their bills but have enough money to pay their citizens to murder Jews.

    • Grin commish-kickie-kid. The world is not as clear to the warm bodies as your ignorance is clear to your own soul. We can discuss our parnassa but Hashem decrees whom it should be given.
