The approach that will impact employment in Israeli society, in ultra-Orthodox public in Israel and abroad, and the entire Israeli high-tech. Join today - be part of the change.
There is a lot of untapped potential in the integration of ultra-Orthodox in high-tech. Many ultra-Orthodox women seek to integrate - but most are graduates of a seminary without a degree, and therefore only manage to attain junior positions (if at all) with low salaries and no long-term stability. This situation is detrimental to the ultra-Orthodox public, the state, and the market - as there is a great shortage of workers for advanced development positions, which currently account for about 20% of all high-tech jobs.
The CODALLEH team comes from within the ultra-Orthodox community, with years of experience in training and integrating ultra-Orthodox women in challenging development positions, and works in accordance with all the needs of the Israeli high-tech industry.
The CODALLEH program is currently being piloted in collaboration with the "HaChadash" seminar in Jerusalem and the Innovation Authority. We created it based on the current needs of high-tech companies in the country and optimized the content and way of teaching to achieve maximum results.
We offer an innovative approach, which combines advanced learning techniques with an emphasis on depth and skills development rather than multiple technologies and theoretical knowledge, out of understanding existing gaps and adherence to scalability.
Addressing the financial gap
It is no secret that the ultra-Orthodox population is growing every year, and there is a vital need to produce respectable income sources for those families. Despite the existing efforts to integrate ultra-Orthodox women in the high-tech industry, the level of success is still very far from what is desired, and there are also significant income gaps.
CODALLEH aims to overcome the barrier of the entry of ultra-Orthodox women into the high-tech industry, by means of focused and unique training. The program aspires to achieve this by imparting required programming languages and necessary skills to perform their role.
Addressing the needs of the high-tech industry
Michal Tzuk, Deputy Director of the Israeli Ministry of Economy, claims that there are about five software development jobs for every qualified person.
CODALLEH brings the graduates to a high professional level. Senior executives at high-tech companies are already showing interest in the program. They have agreed to provide information on their needs, alongside an opportunity to integrate learners and graduates into practical projects.
Addressing the shortage of capable workforce in Israeli high-tech
Apart from a general shortage of human resources, there are many areas for which there is no formal training. Therefore, employers are looking for employees based on previous experience and training as close as possible to what they require. The CODALLEH program is aimed at many of these areas, hoping not only to provide workers that are "good enough" but "better" than the entry-level that exists today.
What sets the program apart is that for the first time a training framework has been created, which develops skills alongside a theoretical background, which are required in the algorithmic development industry.
100% of the content in CODALLEH is "online" - pre-recorded, with great awareness of the gaps that exist today - and is delivered by a team of mentors in the classrooms to ensure that the material is absorbed and applied properly (Blended Learning).

Join today the vision of the initiators of the Codalleh program, we will be happy to meet and weave together a dream into reality.
The pilot of the program in its current form includes 750 hours of practical training, and in order to expand the scope to 2,000 hours of study - which is expected to give a significant leap in the quality of graduates - requires financial support from bodies that this vision speaks to their hearts and are willing to help promote the ultra-Orthodox public to a respectable livelihood in the sought-after high-tech industries.
Our goals for the future:
1) Expand the training program from the current scope of 750 hours in the pilot to an extended training program of 2,000 hours of study.
2) Making the program available to additional seminaries and the periphery and expanding the program to include ultra-Orthodox men as well, thus increasing the number of students.
3) To bring about a change in perception, which will enable the graduates of the course to march the ultra-Orthodox community into the high-tech industry and to enter positions that nowadays have a shortage of manpower. Today, only about 5% of ultra-Orthodox women are employed in the industry, and we are working to encourage the growth of this trend.
4) To strengthen the high-tech companies cooperation in the training phase - beyond providing content for final projects: to bring about collaborations at the mentoring of students and internship programs.
5) To create a new trend of healthy integration of ultra-Orthodox graduates in the high-tech industry, in a way that will suit and benefit both the needs of the industry and the ultra-Orthodox public.
