Holidays In Israel

Israel was established as a Jewish democratic state. In the Declaration of Independence, it states all citizens will be honored as equal rights civilians in all matters, including religious ones. As the country is a mosaic of ethnic and religious groups, only the main holidays are hereby presented.
