The daily life of Ultra-Orthodox Jews revolves around strict adherence to Jewish law, prayer and the study of Jewish texts.
There are different groups with intertwining beliefs, practices and theologies, but in their core beliefs, all movements share the same principles. They used to dress in black with frock coats (although there are many other clothing styles) with black or furry hats for men and long-sleeved, modest clothing for women. They lead a close and moderate life in which they share everything in their own community.
In Jerusalem it's estimated that are living about 150,000 Ultra-Orthordox Jews out of a population of about 800,000 people.
