    Found this interesting but maybe Jewish members here might shed some light on background.

    “The new ultra-Orthodox are a lot of individuals, but there is still no ‘new haredim’ identity, there are no institutions that represent them, that shape their particular identity, and this is the big threat to this whole venture. After a lot of hesitating and searching they might go back [to the yeshiva world], or leave the Torah world definitively. There are also those who go out to work... to enable their children to go back to the yeshiva world.”
    Cohen adds that the model of American haredim could be a good one, but he fears that in Israel there are not enough people and important factors who understand this yet.

    It seems that ideological extremism in general is on the rise, and has been for some time. I wonder what's causing it? Probably a lot of things.
