Israel is a Middle Eastern country located on a narrow strip of land that connects Asia with Africa. The State of Israel occupies the bulk of the territory known as the “Land of Israel”.

Israel is a developed country located in a region characterized by geographic and climatic diversity. In the north – mountains crowned with snow caps, in the south – deserts scorched by the sun; next to flourishing modern cities – deserted expanses. The ethnic and religious mosaic of Israel is striking in its richness; the country has many cultural institutions and entertainment centers. In Israel, a country with a rich historical past, in a holy place for the three monotheistic religions, there are many ancient historical monuments and religious shrines. For most of the year, the climate in Israel is pleasant and you can travel around the country 12 months a year. Nevertheless, it is recommended to visit the country in autumn and spring (September-November and April-June), when the air temperature is especially pleasant.

Population – general information

The population of Israel is about 6.9 million people.

The most characteristic feature of Israel’s population is its diversity. In addition to the main criterion for dividing the population into Jews (80%) and Arabs (20%), there are many other criteria. Thus, for example, Jews are divided into religious and secular, the latter including all kinds of immigrant communities that retain their own distinct culture. Similarly, the Arabs are divided into Muslims, Christians and Druze. In addition, there are small ethnic and religious groups in Israel, such as the Circassians and Samaritans, and small Christian communities of European descent, such as the German community of Beit El, which has found shelter in Zikhron Yaakov.

Another important characteristic of Israel’s population is its high rate of growth. Since the establishment of the State of Israel, its population has increased almost tenfold, mainly due to the immigration of Jews from all over the world. Today, Israel is a densely populated country, even if some of its areas are not densely populated. The population of Israel is young (average age is 28.3 years), infant mortality is low (5.8 deaths per 1000 births), life expectancy is high (78.7 years).


The official languages ​​in Israel are Hebrew and Arabic. English is the main language used to communicate with the outside world. Most Israelis speak English and, as a rule, street signs and inscriptions are duplicated in English.

Hebrew is the most widely spoken language in Israel, with about six million speakers. It is followed by Arabic (more than a million people). Since Israel is a country of immigration, a wide variety of languages ​​are spoken in the various immigrant communities. Chief among them are Russian (900,000 people), Arabic Jewish (300,000) and Yiddish (200,000).

The official languages ​​in Israel are Hebrew, the language of the Bible, and Arabic. Hebrew, Arabic and English are required subjects for study at school. French, Spanish, German, Yiddish, Russian and Polish are also widely spoken in Israel.

You can always get local and foreign newspapers and magazines in several languages. All street signs, signs and signs are made in Hebrew and English, and often in Arabic. In recent years, you can often see inscriptions in Russian.
