The number of registered yeshiva students in Israel has hit a new all-time high, according to a report by the Israel Democracy Institute.
Nearly 125,000 full-time students registered in Israeli yeshivas in 2017 – nearly one-third more than in 2014.
That figure, the IDI noted, includes both Israeli students and foreign nationals.
There has also been a slight decline in the number of charedim enrolled in secular higher education programs, with 9,400 enrolled in academic programs in colleges and universities across Israel in 2017, down from the 9,600 in 2016.
