“When you appear before an audience you must ask yourself what this audience thinks. The prototype of what a chareidi is is actually quite clear. He is a draft evader. He works off the books. He is a parasite. He is a leech, a terrible creature. He also smells during summer months. A black penguin. He is someone disliked by Israeli society and we don’t know what to do with him.
