Hareidi Poverty I read in the hareidi newspaper Modia an article that said that in Israel, after the Arabs, the Hareidi sector is the poorest in the country, and they were demanding that the government do something the fix the situation. Furthermore, here in the USA, I regularly receive letters from various hareidi organizations telling of the dire financial situation among their families and asking for charitable donations. Hareidim, with their large families, observe and study Torah more than anyone else, so why doesn't it result in their receiving decent incomes without having to ask for charity and government assistance? Could you please explain to me how the Rebbe's words conform to reality. Thanks. I hope you realize that I am not attacking the Rebbe or his opinion, I just want to understand it. Reply
