More and more members of haredi society are joining the upper echelons of Israel’s security agencies, including top cybercrime units. The Jerusalem Post spoke with some of these haredim, all anonymously, recruited by the founder of the Pardes Project Rabbi Moshe Kahan, who is also the head of the beit midrash for the program. The project allows haredi youth to pursue a secular education in a haredi framework, while maintaining an ultra-Orthodox environment. Mossad started recruiting ultra-Orthodox candidates in 2017 in partnership with the project. “The intention is to integrate haredim in all aspects of the organization’s operations,” said Mossad director Yossi Cohen.
