Fertility and threat?

From MA’OZ TZ-URL by Scott Alexander. An interesting exception to the demographic rule.
Israeli Jews have a fertility rate of 3, very high for developed countries, despite a high level of female education. Some of this is driven by the Orthodox, but even more liberal Israeli Jews average about 2.6, compared to more like 1.3 for secular Jewish Americans. Why such a big difference?
