Peres: Hareidi Employment 'Strategic Goal'

President Shimon Peres spoke to hareidi-religious college students on Wednesday, and said he believes boosting hareidi participation in the workforce is a national strategic goal. Employers must do their part, he said. “I know that the hareidi sector is interested in entering the workforce, and I call to employers in Israel – let them enter the workforce, and respect the unique conditions that will allow them to do so.”

“We need to be a society that is open to everyone,” Peres continued. “National unity will come from Torah, wisdom and work.” He praised his audience, saying, “I see you as pioneers.”
