This area includes the Golan Heights and excludes parts of the Gaza Strip, Jericho and the West Bank are controlled by the Palestinian Authority as part of the peace process.

Israel is 430 km in length and between 10 km to 110 km in width. Israel borders with Lebanon in the north, Syria and Jordan in the east, Egypt in the south and with areas under the Palestinian Authority.

Modern Israel has numerous ancient sites and ruins, with ongoing and new archeological digs. Israel’s terrain varies from hilly, mountainous landscapes in the north, with rich agricultural land, to barren desert landscapes in the south. The lowest place on the globe, the Dead Sea, is situated in southern Israel.

Climate

Israel’s climate is characterized by a hot and humid coastal climate and a dry desert climate, in the summer, from April to October. The temperatures at this time of year vary from 28C in the north to 40C in the south. Winter begins around November and lasts until March with relatively mild but rainy weather. A typical winter day in Jerusalem is about 5C.

Israel’s average annual rainfall varies from over 800 mm in the north (Upper Galilee) to less than 40 mm in the south (Eilat).

The prevailing system for measurement is the metric system.

Government Overview

The State of Israel, established in 1948, is a secular democratic republic. The parliament (“Knesset”), located in Jerusalem, the state’s capital, is a unicameral chamber of 120 members elected by universal suffrage every four years under a system of proportional representation of party lists. The legislative authority lies with the Knesset which, inter alia, enacts legislation and approves the state budget. The Executive Authority, headed by the Prime Minister who is elected directly by members of the largest parliamentary party, is responsible to the Knesset.

The President, who is the head of state, is elected by the Knesset for a five year term and limited to two consecutive terms in office. His functions are mostly ceremonial. He charges the Prime Minister with the formation of a government after elections for a new term of the Knesset, appoints certain senior state officials, accredits Israel’s envoys to foreign countries and has the power to pardon criminal offenders or commute their sentences.

The State Comptroller is appointed by the Knesset and is required to audit and supervise the assets, finances and obligations of the state including the operations of government ministries, state owned corporations, enterprises and institutions, local authorities and other agencies subject to his inspection, all as prescribed under chapter 2 of the State Comptroller Act of 1958.

The central bank of the State is the Bank of Israel. Its Governor is appointed for a five year term by the President. The Bank is in charge of the management of the national monetary policy, controls banking institutions, mints coins and supplies banknotes, manages foreign reserves and state borrowing, controls foreign currency, coordinates with international banking and financial agencies, keeps the government’s books and serves as economic adviser to the government.

The courts are independent of the Executive and of the Legislature. Judges are appointed by the President who confirms the selection of the Judicial Appointments Committee. The Supreme Court, comprising a president, vice president and twelve justices (ten permanent and two temporary) is situated in Jerusalem. The Supreme Court is Israel’s highest judicial body and functions both as the High Court of Appeals and as a High Court of Justice for cases which were originally defined as within that court’s jurisdiction or which did not fall under the jurisdiction of other courts. The second level of courts is the District Courts which are located in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Beer Sheva and Nazareth. The District Court serves as the court of first instance and also as the court of appeals for civil and criminal cases tried in the Magistrate Courts. Alongside the formal judicial system, a large portion of the civil litigious disputes are solved through various arbitration mechanisms whose judgments or rather arbitral awards are, in essence, as enforceable as those issued by the courts themselves.

Given the numerous religious groups within Israel, many inter-personal disputes are settled by religious courts with circumscribed jurisdiction.

The Israeli legal system was based, upon independence, almost entirely on the British legal system. In the upcoming years a large volume of legislation was enacted thus amending the law and adapting it to the ever changing needs of the country and dynamics of life. Nevertheless the Israeli legislature and judicial system have always been Anglo-American or rather common law oriented and continue to rely on American and English authorities. Today however, the American influence is more significant in the law and the courts decisions than the English one.

Israel is a member of the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the International Court of Justice in The Hague and the World Health Organization. It is also a party to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and numerous conventions.

Israel - A Spiritual Journey

Israel’s overriding attraction for any visitor is the country’s intrinsic connection with spirituality. Whether you are Jewish, Christian, Muslim or Bahai, Israel holds a special place for the adherents of these and other faiths.

For the Jewish people, Israel is the focus of Jewish identity. It is the land of the Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all of whom are interred in the Caves of Macpelach in Hebron. It was the destination of the Children of Israel returning from slavery in Egypt. It is land which has marked the triumph and tragedy of Jewish history from the triumphal reigns of Kings David and Solomon during the 10th century BCE, the violent revolts against the Romans beginning in CE66 and CE 135 which would herald the dispersion of most of the Jewish people to the four corners of the world. The re-establishment of the modern state in Israel in 1948 was the realisation of a 1900 yearning of the Jewish people to be at one with the Land of Israel. Today over one third of world Jewry calls Israel home.

While Jews regard all of Israel as a Holy Land, there are special highlights which feature on a Jewish journey to Israel. In Jerusalem no Jewish visit to the city is complete without a visit to the Western Wall (Kottel) in the old city of Jerusalem . The Western Wall is the vestige of the retaining wall of the Temple built by Herod the Great over 2,000 years ago on the Temple Mount (Mount Moriah) which in turn was built on the site of Solomon’s Temple built over 1,000 years earlier the same site so chosen because it was the site of Abraham’s great test of faith when G-d had ordered Abraham to sacrifice Isaac and having witnessed Abraham’s readiness to obey him at the cost of his son then revoked the order.

The city is replete with remnants of past Jewish. In the Galilee the cities of Tiberias and Safed contain the tombs of great scholars, rabbinical sages and mystics. In Haifa Elijah’s cave marks the site of Elijah’s confrontation with the Priests of Baal. In Beersheba, Abraham watered his flocks. Throughout the land there are sites of ancient and modern acts of Jewish heroism, worship and endeavour.

For Christians, the land of Israel is the land of Jesus and his disciples and the birthplace of the Christian faith. In Nazareth, the Archangel Gabriele announced to Mary that her child would be the Messiah. Nazareth would the home of Jesus during his formative years. In Bethlehem (under PA rule) Jesus was born. In the Judean Desert overlooking the Dead Sea was the site of the testing of Jesus’ faith. The Galilee was the region of Jesus’ miracles and ministry and Jerusalem was the backdrop to his final earthly days. Israel had experienced period of Christian rule under the Byzantines and the Crusades. In 2000 the Christian world celebrated its bimillennial and the highlight of this commemoration was the Papal visit to Israel in March 2000. While various Christian denominations may have differing interpretations over the location and significance of specific holy sites there is unanimity within the Christian world over Israel’s significance as the birthplace of the Christian faith.

The land of Israel holds a special place for Muslims. Islam incorporates many elements of Judaism and Christianity in the faith. Most Arabs trace their line of ancestry from Abraham’s eldest son Ishmael. Muslims and Jews both regard Abraham as their common Patrirach. Although not referred to directly in the Koran most Muslims believe the Prophet Mohammed was transported to heaven by his steed from Jerusalem’s Temple Mount or as Muslims refer to it the Haram El Sharif. In the 7th Century a magnificent mosque, the Dome of the Rock was built on the site. The Dome of the Rock remains one of the most beautiful and visible symbols of the City of Jerusalem and the Islamic connection with the city. In the Galilee, the Horns of Hittin , a double peaked mountain near Tiberias marked the turning point of Crusader rule of Israel when the Muslim forces of Saladin defeated the Crusaders.in 1187. The Horns of Hittin is a major pilgrimage site to the Druze, a significant community in Israel. The land of Israel has experienced two major phases of Islamic dominance the first from 638-1017 and the longest being under the Ottomans from 1520-1917.

The Bahai faith was founded in Persia in 1844 (Modern Iran). The Bahai faith is an amalgam of many religious trends and sees itself as a universalistic though monotheistic faith. Many Bahai’s and their leaders sought refuge from persecution Persia. In 1909 the remains of Bahai’s founder the “Bab” were interred in a modest mausoleum on the slopes of Mount Carmel overlooking the small port of Haifa. Since 1909 the small port grew into a major city and the modest resting place of the Bab has been transformed into a magnificent golden domed temple surrounded by one of the world’s most magnificent gardens comprising of beautifully landscaped terraced gardens that ascend Mount Carmel from near the Haifa port to the summit. The terraced gardens were opened in May 2001 in the presence of almost 4,000 Bahais from all over the world. Haifa is recognised by all 5 million Bahai’s as the international headquarters of the the Bahai faith.

Whether you are an active adherent of the world’s monotheistic religions or not it is difficult not to be spiritually affected by a land which is the focal point of the faith of half the world’s people. Jerusalem especially has an aura which permeates the soul of almost everybody who experiences the city and its surroundings. The stark landscapes of Israel’s deserts, the verdant hills of the Galilee, the turquoise jewel of the Sea of Galilee, the canyons of the Judean Desert and the silent salt encrusted expanse of the Dead Sea all combine to provide an inspirational natural setting for humanity’s spiritual connection on the Land of Israel.

The Israel-Anzac Connection 90 Years On.

Every year more and more Australians and New Zealanders travel to Turkey and Europe to pay homage to the ANZACs which formed such an important part of the common heritage of our two countries. With the 90th Anniversary of ANZAC, the level of awareness of the ANZAC tradition will reach its zenith.

 

One of the most significant chapters of the ANZAC story was etched on the World War I battlefields in Israel in which the ANZACs played an instrumental role in driving the Ottoman Turks out of what is now Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Syria. In November 1917, 800 light cavalrymen of The Australian Light Horse brigade supported by New Zealand infantry led the last successful horse cavalry charge in world military history in the face of machine gun and artillery fire to oust the Turks from their stronghold in Beersheba. Had the charge failed the British forces under General Allenby were prepared to withdraw to Egypt and the history of the Middle East would have been irrevocably altered.

 

The Beersheba charge enabled ANZAC forces to spearhead the entry of the British army into Jerusalem in 1917. Australian and New Zealand forces fought battles all over the land which is now Israel. These ANZAC military deeds were an integral link in the chain of historical events which finally led to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. Sadly, many ANZAC soldiers died in these victorious campaigns, many of them are buried in Commonwealth cemeteries in Israel. ANZAC forces, in conjunction with Palestinian Jewish volunteers in the British army also played an important role in the allied war effort in World War II and many were stationed in Israel to eventually fight in campaigns in Syria and Egypt. A little known fact is that Israel’s legendary former Defence Minister. Moshe Dayan lost his eye which obliged him to wear his famous eye patch whilst serving with Australian troops in the campaign against Vichy French forces in Syria during WWII.

 

In more recent years Australian forces in particular, have served in both United Nations and multinational peacekeeping and border monitoring assignments on Israel’s borders with Syria and Egypt. Australian SAS troops in the recent Iraq conflict have been widely credited with neutralising the threat to Israel of Iraqi scud missiles.

 

The deeds of ANZAC s in the land of Israel are honoured in many parts of the country. There is a project to develop an ANZAC museum in the old Turkish railway station in Beersheba to honour the valour of the Australian Light Horsemen and the ANZAC troops who wrested control of Beersheba from the Ottoman Turks during World War I. A growing number of tour groups are now incorporating the ANZAC link with Israel in their tour programs and during the commemorations of the ANZAC’s 90th Anniversary Israel looks forward to welcoming Australian and New Zealand war veterans, their descendants and Australian and New Zealanders who want to walk in the footsteps of ANZAC s past in a country where some of the greatest ANZAC victories were won. Travel agents and tour operators which rightly run Gallipoli tours should ensure that Israel is considered as a preferred option.

Australian and New Zealand citizens travelling to Israel on Australian or New Zealand passports as tourists do not require a visa. Forms are provided on arrival in Israel, and a 3-month tourist visa is issued. Only those travelling to Israel on official business (such as work, study, etc.) require a visa. Members of the AICC Trade delegations participating on the group program usually do not require visa’s as this is considered a non working visit (please check the specific mission information or contact our office to confirm).

The Bank of Israel controls currency fluctuations indirectly, maintaining the exchange rate in two boundaries – with a 43% range between them. The upper boundary’s slope is 4% and the lower – 2%.

TLC Culture Check

Tracking Crucial Culture Dimensions in Your Organisation on an Ongoing Basis

The best way to know how happy and productive employees are, is to regularly track how they are feeling.

Most progressive organisations survey their work cultures at least once a year, but is that really enough? Daily work experiences can alter individual feelings very quickly, so once a year is often inadequate if an organisation wants to understand and act fast on any cultural changes.

Factor analytic research by Perception Mapping, using 8.5 million data points, has identified five Crucial Culture Dimensions driving high performing workplaces. The dimensions form the TLC Culture Check, designed to help organisations measure and compare their culture on a continuous basis.
The 5 dimensions identify how well a work culture is operating.

In high performance and productive workplaces, staff always:

Perception Mapping for Organisations

Customised Work Culture Diagnostics

Every workplace consists as a series of unique subcultures formed in all the work teams, departments and business units. Perception Mapping (PM) provides fully customised diagnostic surveying to help understand each subculture and what interventions are needed to improve the performance of any group.

Helping organisations understand that, in the very best performing workplaces, people really enjoy coming to work and perform at their best when they are treated well, are engaged, and having fun.

Leaders in every organisation need cultural intelligence to identify where cultural interventions are required, including but not limited to finding where staff feel they are being poorly treated, where they feel dis-engaged from the decisions that affect their work, where they feel dis-empowered and unable to self-manage, where they are being poorly led, and where they are unable to speak up on any issue because they fear retribution.

Deployed internationally by more than 1,000 organisations in 10 countries, PM has been providing customised culture diagnostics for over 20 years.
By special arrangement, The AICC(WA) now provides members and sponsors with access to this well proven fully customised diagnostic surveying process, at AICC(WA) discounted rates.
