Abstract

As in many other countries, in Israel there are disadvantaged groups that are discriminated against in various walks of life, both public and private. Similarly to many other countries, in Israel the law seeks to protect, to varying degrees, the interests of disadvantaged groups, which are defined based on gender, religion, race, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, health status, and more.
