Rivlin calls for greater inclusion of Arabs and Haredim in Public Service

President Reuven Rivlin has called for greater inclusion of Arabs and Haredim in public service positions.  Speaking at his official residence on Wednesday at a ceremony marking the intake of the first group of students of the Wexner Foundation’s Senior Leadership program for public servants, Rivlin noted that more than a quarter of the children in elementary schools in Israel are either Haredi or Arab.  However this ratio is not reflected in the distribution of public service jobs in the adult community, he said.

Rivlin urged the powers that be to wake up to changing realities and to make room for the inclusion and integration of Arabs and Haredim in public service and all sectors of the work force.
