Israel in 1948 was a small sliver of land with a minuscule population, overwhelmingly concerned with the problems of daily survival, and struggling to create the framework for an independent and viable state. Fifty-two years on, and as we pass from one millennium to another, Israel is home to a thriving and vibrant cultural life embodying manifold forms of human expression.
Israel’s demographic patterns and trends are unique, reflecting the complex political, cultural, and religious future of the region. A challenge for the country is the continuing differential rates of population growth between the Jewish and the Arab populations.
