Israel's Haredi Population to Reach 6.5 Million by 2065

Israel’s Haredi community currently numbers about 1.1 million, according to a report by the Central Bureau of Statistics.

Details of the report were released by Kikar HaShabbat, showing that in 2019, Israel’s Haredi population numbered an estimated 1,094,828, or 12% of the total population of the State of Israel. That amounts to close to 17% of Israel’s Jewish population.

The Haredi population, which has the highest birthrate in Israel, is projected to rise to grow rapidly over the next 45 years, with Haredim going from 12% of the total population of Israel to 32% by 2065.

By 2065, Israeli Haredim will number almost 6.5 million, compared to less than 10 million non-Haredi Jews and those categorized as ‘Other’, and about four million Israeli Arabs.

The report also revealed that Haredim have, on average, an income roughly one-third lower than the national average, making up 12% of the population but 8% of the total national income. (INN / VFI News)
