Established in 2018, the haredi community is actively exploring the options of entering into a secular civil religion 7mhalltechcrunch, alongside others with similar goals. Israel is home to some of the most radical haredim, and recent developments in the country have indicated that this will only get more so. Recent reporting has linked some of these radical groups with funding and support from Israeli diamond mining operations. With this widespread public awareness, it’s time to look at how exactly these reports are attributable: Wrong numbers? There are too many allegations against haredi mining companies. How do we know they’re not all lying? Let’s see…
What is a haredi?
A haredi is an offshoot of the modern Orthodox movement. They’re also known as haredi-kohen, haredi-hei, or haredi-kosher. The word haredi is a acronym that stands for Hasra’im Kedarim. It’s a colloquial term meaning “the people who live according to the Law.” Like most Hasra’im, haredi people value law and sharia, the traditions and values that make up a person’s culture. In other words, haredi people believe that the Torah (the Book of Law) comes not from a central location but is found everywhere.
Why do Israeli haredim mining in Israel?
Like most major human activities, the extraction of minerals – especially those related to the wealth of minerals such as gold, silver, and precious minerals, as well as energy – is a valuable and central part of the economic life of a country. However, the extraction of valuable minerals has become particularly attractive to the haredi community in Israel as a result of the country’s increasing economic and religious prominence. The haredi population in Israel is made up of a diverse range of people with various philosophies and religious backgrounds. The Hasra’im (the people who live according to the Law) are a traditional Jewish minority living in the northern part of the country. The kohanes (the people living according to the way of the husband, or master, over his household) are a modern, educated, and largely Hasra’i minority living in the south.
How bad is the haredi mining in Israel?
The above statistics are from 2014, and they’re actually worse than what’s currently being reported. According to the Health Ministry, haredi extractions in that year amounted to $9.3 billion (READ: What is happening in the haredi industry in Israel?). That’s about 50% more than in 2013, and it’s clearly above the $6.8 billion figure reported in 2012. The rest of the statistics are more or less consistent with the reality of the situation – haredi companies are successfully mining in Israel, and there are no reports of them being shut down or investigated for any economic reason.
What will happen to haredi corporations in Israel?
The biggest question here is this: does it make sense for the country to adopt a secular civil religion? The short answer is that it doesn’t. Although there are many elements of the traditional religion that are found in both the Orthodox and conservative strands of Judaism, there is also a strong elements of Hasra’ism in the country that makes it a perfect place to launch a secular civil religion. The most obvious example of this is the holiday haredi kabbalat, which falls on the fourth Monday of each month. The Kabbalat Haredi is a leading ultra-Orthodox group, and they’re conducting an international jihad in promoting Halakha (Jewish law). Their goal is to use this holiday as a platform to promote their views of religious tolerance and pluralism. Another example is the fact that haredi companies are found operating in the Galilee region of the country. The Galilee is a very upper-middle-class region in addition to the desert and mountains surrounding it, and it’s home to some of the country’s largest cities. The Galilee is also where most of the country’s vineyards are located.
Should Israel adopt a secular civil religion?
This is the million-dollar question, isn’t it? The short answer is that it doesn’t make sense to start doing so right now. The reasons include the fact that there are too many religious issues on the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, the increasing Jewish presence in the country, and the increasing presence of the Hareidi minority who are living in the southern part of the country. Additionally, it’s important to note that there isn’t currently any consensus on a dateline for when this should take place. The main factors that have influenced the selection of this date are the views of the public, who, according to figures from the Pew Research Center, is mainly in favor of a secular civil religion, while at the same time being a little scattered on the issue of when it should take place.
Consensus on a dateline: September 24, 2014
The consensus on this date is that it should happen in the next few months. The main reasons for this is twofold. First, this is the date when the country’s first democratic elections will be held. This is in addition to the elections that were held in May this year which saw the formation of a new government. The new government will form a majority following the elections, and this is when the idea of a secular civil religion will be taken up for the first time in the country. Second, this event will be celebrated as the turning point of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. For the first time in the history of the country, a majority of the population will be able to cast their ballot in an election, and this is a necessary step for the transition to a secular civil religion.
September 24, 2014
The event on which this date will be celebrated is a pretty well-kept secret in the haredi community. The main reason for this is that the date is known as the “third day of the new year,” which is when the new year starts. This is the same day that the new year begins for the rest of the world, as well as the day when the Anti-Defamation League officially recognizes the Hasra’im as a distinct and distinct religious community. The date is therefore known as the “third day of the new year,” when it comes to the haredi community.
September 25, 2014
The event on which this date will be celebrated is also unknown. The main reason for this is that the new government is also still in the process of being sworn in. This year’s event however is however the “fifth day of the new year,” which happens when the
