Israel Mini Guide

Israel occupies a long narrow stretch of land at the south-eastern corner of the Mediterranean. This hilly country has as its natural eastern boundary the Great Rift Valley, the great fault which split the earth's surface from Syria to Africa millions of years ago. The valley contains the River Jordan, which flows first through subtropical vegetation, then arid wasteland to the Dead Sea, 394 m (1293 ft) below sea level. The triangular wedge of the Negev Desert ends at the Gulf of Aqaba, at the head of which is Israel's southern outlet, the small port of Eilat.

Israel's northern half is temperate and fertile, while the south is arid and barren. Most of the country's estimated 7.7 million citizens live on the coastal plain bordering the Mediterranean, where Tel Aviv is the leading commercial city. The greenest part is Galilee, though here, as in all Israel, no rain falls in summer. The Sea of Galilee, lying among the northern hills, is Israel’s main reservoir of fresh water. This is piped to the Negev - the desert and semi desert home of wandering Bedouin Arabs - and it is the Israelis' proud boast that they have 'made the desert bloom' with sunflowers, sugar beet and other crops.

In the 40 years since modern Israel was founded, large numbers of them have left Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa to make new lives in their historic homeland. The Jewish population was 650,000 in 1948; today it is near 6 million which accounts for nearly a third of the world's Jews. The second largest ethnic group are Arabs, comprised of both Muslim and Christian faiths.

Israel is a young country with about one third of the population is under 14. The people are highly educated; many of those who flocked to Israel brought with them a wealth of skills and it is not uncommon for, say, a truck driver to have a degree. It is also one of the most polyglot societies on earth; there are, for instance, Iraqi, Ethiopian, Moroccan and Russian Jews, and many others.
