Freedom of religion in Israel

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Israel has no constitution; however, the law provides for freedom of worship, and the Government generally respects this right in practice.

There was no change in the status of respect for religious freedom during the period covered by this report. The Basic Law describes Israel as a "Jewish" and "democratic" state. The overwhelming majority of non-Jewish citizens are Muslims, Druze, and Christians. Israeli Arabs, temporary residents, and other non-Jewish Israelis, are, in fact, free to practice their religions.[1]
