Recognition of religion or belief in Israel

According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the State of Israel are classified restrictive.

Recognition of religion or belief in Israel


  • Judaism is the state religion.

  • Recognition and registration are amalgamated rather than differentiated and there exists an emphasis on the former as existential recognition rather than latter as legal registration.

  • The Israeli recognition system is misused to ostracise groups that it does not recognise; any group not already recognised in Israeli law hasn’t the opportunity gain recognition through formal procedures without political involvement.

Positive elements:

  • Nil.


  • Establish a recognition system that has sufficient provisions for both existential recognition and legal registration simultaneously and at different levels of activity.

  • Remove existent abuses of the recognition system that have amounted to stagnation of recognition processes and overall caused violations of citizens' religious freedoms.
