Close to a quarter of Israelis will be Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) by the year 2050, Haaretz reported. The report is based on a government economic body. The Israeli news outlet also wrote that the study’s conclusions would guide the government’s planning in the upcoming decades.

 

The report featured a demographic forecast as well. In this forecast, roughly 80 percent of Israelis will be Jews. About 20 percent of Israelis will be Arab. “By 2050, Israel’s current population of 9.2 million is expected to grow to almost 16 million, with 3.8 million projected to be ultra-Orthodox, up from 12.6 percent of the population today,” the report said.

 

The report didn’t mention that the Haredi community is among the poorest in Israel. According to the JPost, 49% of the ultra-orthodox community live below poverty. This means that more people will be turning to food providers like Colel Chabad. 

 

Colel Chabad is a non-profit organization that the Israeli government selected to provide food to the Israelis who need it most. They do this using a network of food basket delivery to poor people while distributing food stamps, and it’s all funded privately.

Now that many more Israelis suffering from food insecurity are expected to show up on their doorstep, Colel Chabad must kick it into high gear and figure out a way to purchase all of that food to prevent hunger in the Jewish State.

 

That’s why Colel Chabad is scrambling to recruit enough funding to cover those costs.
