Jewish Culture Garners Worldwide Attention

On this Page:


The United Nations recently released their annual Human Development Report, “The Real Wealth of Nations: Pathways to Human Development,” and Israel came in high on the list at number 15.

 

Based on the belief that “people are the real wealth of nations,” the report ranks nations based on a number of factors, including life expectancy, years of schooling, and gross national income per capita. Further, development is defined as freedom for people to engage in a long, prosperous, and, above all else, creative life.

 

With its unique Jewish culture that has found its way into nearly every corner of the world, Israel placed between France and Finland, and it is interesting to note that a similar Newsweek study earlier this year gave Finland the top spot. The highest honors this year went to Norway, with the United States coming in at number four.

 

We invite you to come and experience our rich culture for yourself and enjoy all the wonders that Israel has to offer!
