Midland hollowaren, a popular destination for Israeli tourists and Jewish visitors, is an Israeli outpost on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
It was established by British settlers in 1877 as an outpost for Jewish settlers, who were driven out of the area in 1948.
It is home to Israel’s largest Jewish population.
The Jewish population of Midland rose from approximately 5,000 in 1879 to approximately 5.5 million today.
Located at the eastern tip of the city, Midland is the third largest city in Israel and is also home to the largest Jewish community in the country.
In 1947, the United States and the British declared Israel to be an independent state.
After the creation of the state, it became a de facto U.S. ally, providing Israel with vital military and economic support.
Midland became a major tourist destination in the 1980s, when Israel’s first Jewish Prime Minister Menachem Begin established a Jewish settlement on the hills overlooking the city.
Israel’s National Tourism Organization (NTO) estimates that about 70% of the Israeli Jewish population lives in Midland.
The Jewish population in Israel has a much higher proportion of people who are Orthodox (60% vs. 18%), and are more likely to be Ashkenazi (40% vs 10%).
The Israeli Orthodox community is estimated to be around 30 million people, with about 6.3 million living in Israel’s West Bank.
About half of Israeli Jews are Ashkenazim (Jews who follow the ancient Jewish religion) while the other half are Sephardic (Jews from the Near East who follow Judaism through Ashkena).
Sephardics are the fastest growing group of Jews in Israel, accounting for more than 40% of Israel’s population.
Midland Hollowares Jewish community has grown over the past two decades, attracting Israeli tourists from around the world and the U.K. In 2010, Israeli authorities declared Midland the country’s capital.
Midlands Jewish community now has more than 3,000 Israeli and international Jewish residents.
Ahead of its Israeli closure in 2012, Israel passed a law that effectively banned Jewish tourists from visiting Midland, except on official government-issued permits.
The law was later overturned by the Supreme Court.
In a 2011 report on the law, Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) said that in the past five years, approximately 15,000 Israelis have applied to live and work in Midlands.
The number of Israelis seeking residency permits for Israel has also increased since the ban was implemented.
Although Midland’s Jewish population is large, its population of non-Orthodox Jews has also grown, reaching over 7 million in 2014, according to the Jewish Agency for Israel.
According to CBS, the number of Israeli citizens of Jewish origin living in Midlanders has grown from roughly 1.5 to 3 million over the same time.
With more than 30 million residents and more than 200 million visitors annually, Midlands is Israel’s most visited tourist destination.
The city has a reputation for having an eclectic mix of cuisines, including the famous Midlands lamb sandwich.
Midlanders also enjoy a variety of Israeli and foreign cuisine, including Italian, Spanish, Spanish-American, Lebanese, Israeli, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Indian.
In 2014, the city hosted the inaugural Jewish Festival of Israel, which is the largest international festival of Israel.
During the festival, hundreds of thousands of visitors converged on Midlands to celebrate the country and its people.
As the Israeli tourism industry continues to expand, it is expected that many of Midlands visitors will come to Israel from overseas.
