    From what I see hear the Haredi are completely hallucinated in their teaching or approach to life. After the WWII and the Shoah which destroyed their communities they have transferred their communities almost without a change to Israel where they are a big problem or to the USA, and some other places. Some of their explanations to the Shoah are really unbelievable not to say something that requires psychiatric help for most people and they continue in their life and ridiculous habit as nothing has happened that requires re-examination of their culture. What can be done with this is not clear but it weakens the Jewish ability to survive.
