As many as one-fifth of Israeli Jews identify as national-religious, study finds

A survey conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute and released this week found that one fifth of Israeli Jews identify as belonging to the national-religious sector, a significantly higher figure than was previously thought.

The new study published on Tuesday also revealed attitudes within the national-religious community on a variety of issues such as settlements, rabbinic influence on national policy, civil marriage and other matters relating to religious life in Israel.

The survey was conducted in 2013 on a sample group of 978 respondents who identified themselves as belonging to the national-religious sector out of a representative nationwide sample of 4,597 adults residing in Israel.
