More about Israel

  • LOCALTIMEZONE: Latest statistics of population in the country of Israel, including languages spoken, urban population, birth rate, fertility rate and life expectancy for both men and women.

Population

The people who support the state are the Jews, who are divided into Vatiqim (immigrated before the state was founded), Olim (immigrated after the state was founded) and Sabra (born in the country). About 20% of the population are Arabs (mostly Palestinians). The Arabs also include the approximately 240,000 Bedouins in the Negev, who have largely given up their nomadic life.

The structure of the population has changed significantly since the beginning of Zionist immigration to Palestine in 1882. In the period up to the First World War, around 50,000–70,000 Jews immigrated to Palestine. At the time of the British Mandate (1919–48) there were another 500,000 Jews, mainly from Central and Eastern Europe (Ashkenazim, Ashkenaz). In 1949 there were 240,000 immigrants, 170,000 in 1950, 175,000 in 1951; the proportion of immigrants from the Islamic countries of Africa and Asia had risen sharply (Sephardim, Sefarad). Between 1980 and 1988 the annual number of immigrants was 15,000. Between 1990 and 2005 alone, 923,900 Jews immigrated from the former USSR or later CIS. Between 2006 and 2016, 211,000 immigrants were counted; most of them came from Eastern Europe.

Israel is a model for the integration of people from all over the world who came into the country as a result of immigration. Despite Judaism as a common religion, a very heterogeneous society has emerged in which the different living conditions in the countries of origin are reflected. Check shoefrantics to see The Best of Israel.

In July 2018, Hebrew was declared the only official language, while Arabic , previously the second official language, only received a special status.

The average population density is (2018) 411 residents / km 2. Three quarters of Israelis live in the coastal plain. The mountains are only densely populated in the valleys and basins; the Negev is almost uninhabited. Despite far-reaching measures for rural development, the majority of the population (2017: 92%) lives in cities. The largest agglomerations, in which three quarters of Israelis live, are Tel Aviv-Jaffa , Jerusalem and Haifa.

After 1967 state subsidies were given to the establishment of Jewish settlements in the occupied and Palestinian West Bank , around Jerusalem and in the Gaza Strip ; the latter was evacuated by Israel in 2005.

Religion

The 1948 Declaration of Independence guaranteed every citizen freedom of religion. In addition to the Jewish religion, Islam, Christianity, Druze and the Baha’i religion are officially recognized as religious communities by the state. Associated with the recognition are for the religious communities in particular the rights to manage their internal affairs themselves, to celebrate their festive days and weekly rest days and to maintain worship buildings or to erect them in accordance with their religious regulations. According to 2016 estimates, around 75% of the population are Jews, around 18% Muslims, 2% Christians, 1.6% Druze and 0.2% Baha’is.

According to surveys, the religious life and the Jewish character of the State of Israel are important elements of their identity for the vast majority of Israeli Jews (including those who do not practice religion). Since the 1990s there has been a strong presence of Orthodox Jewish groups in public. As the highest decision-making body in questions of Jewish culture and life, there is a chief rabbinate with an Ashkenazi and a Sephardic chief rabbi. The subject of internal Jewish discussions in connection with religious legislation is the question of the right to convert Jews to other religious communities.

As the largest religious minority, the Muslims are predominantly Sunnis from the Shafiite school of law. The numerically small Christian minority has its religious center in Jerusalem – also the holy city of Jews and Muslims – and includes Christians of all denominations: Catholics (Latin Patriarchate Jerusalem, Melkites , Maronites); Orthodox (Greek Orthodox Patriarchate Jerusalem [ Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem ], Armenian, Ethiopian, Coptic, Russian Orthodox Church, Assyrian Church, Syrian Orthodox Church); Anglicans (Jerusalem and Middle East Provinces); Protestants (Baptists, Lutherans, Presbyterians and others; around 20 denominations in total); The Jewish Christians (“messianic Jews”) form a special Christian community.

Other religious minorities are the Druze , Karaites , Samaritans, and Bahais. Israel is home to the international center (Haifa) and the most important shrines (Haifa, Akko) of the Baha’i religion.
