Israel - Aging Population, Social Services, Challenges

countries waves

The State of Israel was established after the Holocaust, in 1948, as a Jewish and democratic state. One of its declared goals was to become the renewed homeland, open to Jews from all over the world. Since then, Israel has absorbed immigrants from about one hundred countries. Most of them came in large waves during short periods of time as other countries opened their gates for emigration. The demographic composition of these immigrant waves has thus been a significant factor in shaping Israel's demography.
