They work in high-tech and advertising, serve in the Israel Defense Forces and still wear black skullcaps • They demand recognition and legitimacy, threaten to split off from the United Torah Judaism party and become angry when others describe them as foes • Although the leaders of the haredi street make it difficult for them to find spouses and call them “haredi-lite,” they also realize that these "new haredim" are not going away • The "new haredi" movement may lead the haredi sector either to an explosion or to a split
