We are pleased to forward February's newsletter for the Institute for Zionist Strategies. Included in the newsletter is an addendum to  Yaakov Faitelson's position paper "Demographic Trends in the Land of Israel (1800-2007)", a description of an educational tour, conducted by the Young Leadership Program of the Institute for Zionist Strategies, that explored the Haredi society in Israel, and finally, an update regarding the recent additions to the IZS website.


Demographic Trends in the Land of Israel:
Updated for 2009

This month, the IZS is pleased to present an addendum to the position paper by Yaakov Faitelson, "Demographic Trends in the Land of Israel (1800-2007)".

The supplement, which is supported by current data, reinforces Faitelson's hypothesis and indicates that if the existing tendency of "demographic transition" continues, it may lead to the Total Fertility Rate equality of the two populations even faster - perhaps by the year 2017.

For the Full Paper

IZS in the Media Activity

Prof. Avi Diskin in a Discussion with Emanuel Halperin Concerning the Separation of Powers in Israel:

"Each new court decision on Knesset  over  the past 25 years, has  had a single common denominator – the authority of the Supreme Court is expanding."

The Privatization of the Israel Land Administration

The Implementation of the reform in the Israel Land Administration planned to commence on 01.01.10 has been delayed since a collective bargaining agreement has not yet been reached with ILA employees.

In practice, the new Israel Lands Authority has managed to meet only once.  The number of JNF-KKL representatives on the council has decreased to two (from six) in accordance with a government order.

This month, two petitions were submitted to the Supreme Court in opposition to the "reform". The petition submitted by the Committee for the Fight Against the Privatization of the Land in Israel decries the violation of the  Basic Law: Lands of Israel.  An additional petition against the government action was submitted by MK Dr. Hanna Swaid.

Several Members of Knesset (Nachman Shai, Shelly Yacimovich, Uri Orbach, Yariv Levin and Ronit Tirosh) have submitted a bill on the issue of restricting the transfer of lands to foreigners.

The Integration of Haredim into Israeli Society

On Friday, 8 Tevet 5770, 25.12.2009, the Institute for Zionist Strategies held a tour on the subject of Haredi society.  The tour was held within the framework of the Young Leadership Program of the IZS and included meetings with key figures in Haredi society.

As an isolated society, Haredim remain a mystery to the majority of the Israeli public.  The tour, including the Haredim we met, opened a window to the world of this unique society and helped us gain an understanding of its goals, its development, and its sensitivities. The ultimate objective is the promise of the integration of the Haredi community into Israeli society.
