According to a report by Eliran Rubin in TheMarker, a new campus will be set up in Bnei Brak to help chareidim work in hi-tech fields. Backers include Amnon Shashua, one of the founders of Mobileye that was recently sold to Intel for a record $15 billion, Bank Leumi and Cisco.
"Our research found that many potential chareidi employees would like to find work, but are not really ready to commute to anyplace far from Bnei Brak. Therefore we decided to set up an employment center within Bnei Brak, that in its initial stage will have facilities for 200 workers, with a possibility of expanding to 400," said Moshe Friedman, the director of Kamma Tech which is putting together the project. He claims that 10 companies are seriously interested in setting up work groups in the new center.
Kamma Tech says that it is working with rabbonim and community leaders to ensure that the environment is proper and comfortable for chareidi workers.
