Israel is a land of remarkable diversity, both demographic and geographic.
Home to 9.1 million, Israel's citizenry is made up of Jews (75%), Muslim and Christian Arabs (21%) and smaller minorities of Druze, Arameans, Armenians, Circassians, and Samaritans. The Jewish community, many of whom returned to the ancient Jewish homeland over the past 73 years, hail from nearly every country around the world. These immigrants, or olim, brought along their language, culture and cuisine, all of which are now infused into Israeli culture.
Geographically speaking, Israel is about the size of New Jersey. Nevertheless, it manages to pack rolling green hills, high mountains, Mediterranean shores, lakes, natural springs, deserts, the lowest point on Earth at the Dead Sea and the Red Sea's bio-diversity into its borders.
