    Haredi middle class emerging

    A small but significant segment of the haredi population whose
    socioeconomic status could be defined as middle class is beginning to
    emerge. Although specific numbers are not yet available there are
    several characteristics of a nascent ultra-Orthodox middle class that
    sets them apart from other members of their community and which
    represent a new haredi sector that aspires to a more varied lifestyle.
    Unlike other segments of the ultra-Orthodox public, the middle class
    haredim are likely to work outside the community, often in
    professional vocations such as accounting or law. They are also more
    inclined to choose a partner with similar interests especially
    regarding employment.
