ULTRA-ORTHODOX MOVING TO PERIPHERY, PRESAGING INCREASED SOCIETAL TENSION

.jpost


Given the rapid increase in the haredi population due to its high birth rate, the National Economic Council has estimated that between 170,000 to 200,000 housing units will be needed for the haredi sector over the next twenty years. 

Traditionally, the majority of the haredi community has been largely concentrated in Jerusalem and Bnei Brak, but as housing prices there have risen dramatically with the rapid growth of the haredi population and subsequent increase in demand, there has been an increasing trend to move out of those centers. 

Beit Shemesh in the Jerusalem district and Elad in the Central District, as well as as Ashdod and Petaj Tikav, along with the homogenous haredi cities of Modiin Illit and Beitar Illit in the West Bank, became new destinations for haredi families to settle in over the last two decades.

    If you look at avodah Zarah, the mishna tells us that chazal went to Roman baths, even despite the statues there. This was a totally secular behavior, nothing to do with hareidi isolationism.

    you are mad (crazy/nuts)


    On the contrary, you see them as wrongdoers. I am saying what is written in the Mishnah = Oral law. They had a debate even with the Roman goyim about whether this was permitted, being that there was an idol on the wall.



    So where is the disrespect? They deemed secular activity in a roman avodah zarah bath as OK. Hence, there should be no problem with riding on a mixed bus, seeing TV, going to university or having a an army.

    You fail to understand anything they teach us. You see them through the ash coloured spectacles of your fake hareidi lifestyle.

    Roman baths were quite the opposite of a holy mikvah. See this https://www.quora.com/Were-the-Ancient-Romans-sexually-depraved
    It's true that in Geula, and in Satmar and hareidi mikves in USA and elsewhere ,t hey have turned back the clock to the old roman baths.
