Policy context for employment and skills in Israel (Employment and Skills Strategies in Israel)

This chapter provides an overview of Israel’s employment and skills system.

Arab-Israelis and Ultraorthodox (Haredim) face a number of unique labour market challenges and have labour force participation rates significantly below that of the mainstream Jewish population.
