The "Road Map" is an off-shoot of the "Israel 2028 : Vision and Strategy for Economy and Society in a Global World" report. Its goal is to outline solutions for one of the major problems concerning the Israeli economy that is identified in the report: the low rate of participation of the Ultra-Orthodox community in the labor market.

The "Road Map" describes a series of initiatives designed to accelerate the integration of the Ultra-Orthodox population into wider circles of employment and to improve its economic situation – without affecting its special character.

The activities outlined in the "Road Map" are not intended to replace political and private initiatives in this field, but rather to organize and concentrate them in three major tracks, or lines of action, as outlined below:

A. Strengthening the connection between the Ultra-Orthodox community, employers and employment-related organizations (private and public).

B. Promoting vocational training and academic education among the Ultra-Orthodox population.

C. Improving the effectiveness of existing levers for entry into the labor market

 

All the activities outlined in the "Road Map" will be performed in full coordination and close cooperation with the relevant government offices, the Ultra-Orthodox leadership, private entrepreneurs and research organizations in Israel. The Samuel Neaman Institute will serve as a coordinator and catalyst of the "Road Map" initiatives, through an extended Expert Forum and a limited Steering Committee. These two teams already began their initial activity in July 2010
