This is what happens when you work right!
✅ A 220% increase in the number of Haredi students, both men and women, attending academic institutions between 2010 and to 2021.
✅ In 2021 alone, there was a 14% increase in the number of students from the Haredi community.

We are happy to witness the fruits of years of hard work and investment in scholarships, guidance, counseling, and support, and see a significant increase in the number of Haredi students attending institutions of higher education.
The continuation of the growth trend depends, first and foremost, on the ability of the students to maintain their Haredi lifestyle during their studies, without giving in to outside influences to change their value system.
We at the KEMACH Foundation will continue to support Haredi men and women in academic institutions to help them succeed, maintain their Haredi identity and find quality employment.
