Abstract: A social impact bond (SIB) is an innovative financial tool designed to resolve the lack of efficiency of public financing of social services and create additional sources of funding for various social projects. The purpose of this study is to examine the use of SIBs for the encouragement of ultra-orthodox employment and evaluate their economic return to the Israeli Government. First, the expected impacts of training ultra-Orthodox men for employment in the high-tech sector of the local labour market are evaluated. Second, economic profitability is measured as expected cost savings for the Israeli Government.
