Chareidim in Eretz Yisroel finally are finally realizing  that the present Kollel situation is not sustainable, and are ignoring the "Gedolim" and seeking careers.

There is a growing trend among chareidim in Israel who wish to attain an academic degree. In 5772, there are over 6,000 students identified with the chareidi tzibur studying for a degree, and N’vei Institute reports a 30% increase in registration this year, Kikar Shabbat reports.

Upon completion of the program, N’vei also assists graduates in finding suitable positions in the workforce. The school will be holding an open day for prospective students on January 29, 2012. The program is designed for yeshiva graduates that wish to invest in a future in the workplace, willing to work hard towards earning a degree that can open doors in a number of fields, including high-tech.
