In his own words: Yair Lapid on Haredim

Here's a lecture that Yair Lapid, the big winner in Tuesday's election, gave at the Haredi branch of the college at Kiryat Ono (which includes the country's only Haredi law school) in 2012. It gives lots of hints as to how Lapid relates and will relate to the Haredi world.

And it even has English subtitles.

Let's go to the videotape.

For those who've never seen an institution like this before, Kiryat Ono is one of several colleges that have been established in order to allow Haredim to pursue academic studies in a Haredi environment.

I found this lecture fascinating. Although I don't agree with all of it, there's a lot of truth in it. Listening to what he says makes me more optimistic that it might be possible to work with Lapid.

I saw that video yesterday and it was very interesting. He appeals to me as a secularist.
