Over the last several years the fast growing demographic in Ariel is young observant families.
The families ranging in ages from 20's to 40's, have developed a community successful in furthering projects for integration amongst Jews, Jewish identity and Chesed


Ariel's newest neighborhood located close to the university center, it has a large population of students renting in the area.  The neighborhood has grown in the past couple of years and the apartments are built by the new building standards and allow a more open space feeling compared to the original neighborhoods
