Funding for ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) education has become a major political topic in Israel. This article examines the conventional notion that funding for Haredi pupils increases as Haredi political strength rises. A study was conducted examining the correlation between budget changes and the political strength of the Haredi parties at three levels: parliamentary representation, extent of coalition partnership, and a government headed by their political ally, the Likud. The correlation was checked against the Budget Law and against actual budget expenditures during 1996–2006.
