Torah School

Ultra-Orthodox Jewish children sit in class at the Shomrei HaHoma Torah School for boys in Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighbourhood. The Israeli government is trying to encourage ultra religious schools to teach a broader range of useful core subjects as well as religion, so that their students are equipped to contribute to Israel's economy in the future. Israel's ultra-Orthodox minority has long been at odds with the Jewish state's highest judicial authority over edicts which some devout Jews say interfere with their religious lifestyle.
