Fun Facts

Are People in Israel Multilingual?

Israel is home to people with roots from over 120 countries. It is common to hear multiple languages in addition to the two official languages – Hebrew and Arabic – in the streets.

Officially known as the State of Israel, the republic is situated in the Middle East along the Mediterranean Sea bordering Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the West Bank, Egypt, the Gaza Strip and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea. 

While all Israeli children are formally taught Modern Hebrew, Arabic and English, a large population of Israelis also speak Russian, French, Spanish, Yiddish or Amharic (the official language spoken in Ethiopia).   Classical Hebrew can also be heard, and is used for prayer and study in Jewish communities around the world.  Israel was established as a homeland for the Jewish people, and people with Jewish lineage from all over the world have the right to Israeli citizenship.  

Israel is an international country with a rich mix of culture, language, art and talent.  It is easy to see why people from all over visit and settle in such a multilingual and multicultural place.  

To all those with the good fortune to visit Israel: “Mazel tov” or "מזל טוב"
