Israeli Haredi society consists of numerous streams, groups and sub-groups, which share a common overall reluctant/ambivalent approach toward Zionism and the State of Israel and segregate themselves from the surrounding society. Nevertheless, in last few decades there has been evidence of a process of Israelization within this religiously conservative society, that can be categorized as integration without assimilation.
