On Seperate Campuses and Haredi Education

“These days, the Council for Higher Education is conducting discussions regarding the renewal of the five-year-plan for integration of Haredim into academia. Despite the significant success of the previous five-year-plan, some oppose its renewal. The majority of the discussion revolves around the continued existence of gender-separate campuses, which today house the majority of Haredi students. The arguments of the opposition reveal that they lack familiarity with the characteristics and mentality of the Haredi community as well as the existing reality, since the action they seek will undoubtedly incur the return to isolation of the Haredi sector and impede the continued integration of this community into Israeli society.”
