Jerusalem: Equal rights and access

Israel is a country of minorities—literally built and founded by immigrants from a multitude of ethnicities.

Judaism is the largest religion but its adherents hail from all across the globe, from Asia to South America. Hence, it is difficult to talk about Israel without mentioning its core value of immigration by Jews from all corners of the earth, or ‘Aliyah,’ (“ascension” to Israel).

Jews comprise approximately 75 percent of Israel’s total population. Israel’s Basic Law on Human Dignity and Liberty ensures full social and political equality, regardless of ethnicity, religion or gender to all its citizens.
