Developed Jewish nation

The Jewish State of Israel, with Jerusalem as its capital city, has an estimated population of 8,051,200 people in 2013, with 75,3% of them being Jewish. Today Israel is a developed country that has one of the highest life expectancies in the world,and the highest standard of living in the Middle East and the third highest in Asia. according to international standards. Israel is a member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). An international economic organization of 34 countries that aims to stimulate economic progress and world wide trade. 

On the latest index list of the United Nations (UN) Human Developing Index (HDI) - a statistical measure of a countries level of human development - of the 47 highest ranking countries, covering the period up to 2012, Israel is ranked 16. In comparison the United States is ranked 3 and the United Kingdom 27 on the list. The HDI, contrary to GDP that only measures the domestic productivity and income per capita of a country, takes into account how income is turned into education and health opportunities, and therefore into higher levels of human development.

To many Jewish people the assimilation to and absorption into the Israeli culture and society has been challenging. And Aliyah itself may have been a difficult and many times hazardous journey for hundreds of thousands of Jewish people. Still it has been a rewarding one, for a nation has been revived, including its language, within its own land, the Land of Israel. This is something that has never happened before in the history of mankind. But, according to continually unfolding biblical prophecies, Aliyah will still be on going until the realization of all future things to come for Israel.
