History Of Israel 

By Jorja Hoover and Ali McDermott   

The birthplace of the Jewish people is the Land of Israel. A tallit is a prayer shawl worn by Jews during weekday morning services, on the Sabbath, and on holidays. During Sabbath and holiday evening prayers, only the prayer leader and Torah reader wear a tallit.
In 1948 Israel was declared a state. The flag was adopted on October 28, 1948, five months after Israel was declared a state. Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in West Asia, situated at the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea.

Israel's financial center is Tel Aviv, while Jerusalem is both its self-designated, though unrecognised by the United Nations, capital and the most populous individual city under the country's governmental administration.
It has geographically diverse features within its relatively small area.
Israel is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago.
The blue stripes symbolize the stripes on a tallit, the traditional Jewish prayer shawl. The portrayal of a Star of David on the flag of the State of Israel is a widely-acknowledged symbol of the Jewish people and of Judaism.
Israel is the representation of Jewish continuity. The percentage of Jews in Israel is 74.5 percent. The other is 20.6 percent Arab. The other 4.1 percent is minority groups
