Jewish and Israeli culture is incredibly varied and diverse. Not only do you have the Arab - Israeli conflict in the Land itself, often spilling over the borders into the wider world scene, but also immense diversity within the Jewish people themsleves.
There are the Modern Orthodox, Ultra-Orthodox, Haredi Orthodox, Lubavitcher, Reform, Conservative, Liberal and completely secular. Each with its own myriad of ideas, beliefs, and traditions.
Add to that the prophetic volume of new immigrants making aliyah to Israel from literally the four corners of the world, then you are bound to end up with cultural, linguistic, educational, philosophical, behavioural and ethnic diversity on a massive scale.
There are some helpful numbers and fact, below, to help illustrate the point, and our very own recipes section where you can literally smell and taste the diversity that is the Jewish people, and Israel today.
Israel is a small country - just under 280 miles from top to bottom and an average of just 37 miles across. It's demographic, however, is extremely diverse as its cosmopolitan society has been gathered as a literal fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
The diversity of contributing nations to the population of Israel is inevitably reflected by the infinite range of cuisine available in the country. The country itself is famous for its fresh fruit and vegetables (the Jaffa orange has long been a well-known symbol of the country).
