I'm a 38 year old, a mother of 3 and Ultra-Orthodox. I coordinate the matriculation exams and the History curriculum of the Ultra-Orthodox school system. As well as teaching in several Haredi teachers colleges.

 Currently I'm PhD student at the Swiss center for Conflict Resolution at the Hebrew University. My research deals with the issue of poor and disadvantage in the Ultra-Orthodox community.  I'm examining whether there are unique features for the Haredi weakness, which of their rights are being violated, and what steps and policies could help these people.  In addition I runs a Research Project examining the effect of certain messages on changing Haredi attitudes towards secular Jews. More specifically, I'm examining whether Haredi become more open and willing to associate with secular Jews when they are exposed to secular Jews who criticize secular society tin the Israeli society.

 My vision is to lead to reconciliation and acceptance between minorities, segments, secular and religious communities in Israel. And specially help the Ultra-Orthodox community to find the right balance of integration into the secular society while maintaining segregated life style.  In order to achieve this goal I take part in a Dialog group of left wing leaders and Ultra-Orthodox Rabbis trying to create a bridge and that will lead to acceptance.as well as coordinating Website address questions of young ultra-Orthodox
