Temech stamp- Give her form the fruit of her hands


Economic transformation for Haredi women, by Haredi women

The year is 2006.

67% of the Israeli Haredi world lives below the poverty line, struggling to put food on the table and generating an increasing welfare burden on the Israeli economy. Career options and professional training are limited for Haredi women, who are usually the primary breadwinners of their families. External attempts to change the status quo are met with resistance or suspicion by a community very protective of its values and lifestyle.

Temech’s innovative professional programs and resources are an appreciated, accepted and trusted part of the Haredi community. We partner with government bodies, local municipalities, Haredi post-high school educational institutions and major Israeli corporations to initiate change from within and open opportunities from without. 

76% of Haredi women are involved in the workforce.  Temech is widening opportunities for their advancement.  Our focus has moved from entering employment, to raising salaries and creating cultural sensitivity in the workplace. 

Fast forward to 2065

The Haredi community accounts for 33% of Israel’s population.

What does Israel’s economic strength look like?
