Abstract

Introduction Theoretical background Methodology The Haredi in Jerusalem Kiryat-Ha'Yovel “Terrain of interests” between Haredi and secular in Kiryat-Ha'Yovel Organisation in housing Potential for influencing planning decisions Conclusions: failure of liberalism or all-you-can-grab planning? Full Article Figures & data References Citations Metrics Reprints & Permissions PDF Abstract This article examines the weaknesses of liberal planning institutions when dealing with organised group action. The case under review, the Kiryat-Ha'Yovel neighbourhood in Jerusalem, was considered as secular for many years. In 2000 the neighbourhood became attractive to the nearby Haredi (ultra-orthodox Jews) group of the “Kol-Torah’ community. Differences in lifestyle led to a collision between the group of “Kol-Torah”, who began “Haredification” processes to change the character of the area to be suitable to Haredim, and the veteran population, who tried to prevent it. Identifying the main engines of organised neighbourhood change and evaluating the difficulties of liberalism dealing with non-autonomous individuals in the housing market sheds light on similar processes occurring in other city centres with diverse population groups.
