2020 Annual Assessment

The Pluralism Index is one of the products of JPPI’s broader Pluralism Project, which is supported by the William Davidson Foundation, and this is its sixth publication . The 2020 Pluralism Survey was conducted by Prof. Camil Fuchs of Tel Aviv University. The editors of the Index are Shmuel Rosner and Noah Slepkov, from JPPI. The baseline of the Index was written by JPPI senior fellow Brig. Gen. (Res.) Michael Herzog. JPPI fellows Dr. Shlomo Fischer, Amb. Avi Gil,
and Dr. Inbal Hakman contributed to the analysis. The Survey included 604 respondents from Israel’s Jewish sector through an internet panel, and another 273 respondents from Israel’s non-Jewish sector via telephone. Respondents comprised a representative sample of the two populations surveyed. The Jewish sector survey was carried out by the Migdam Project, led by Dr. Ariel Ayalon. The sampling error is 4 precent at a significance level of 95 precent The sampling error for the Arab survey, conducted by pollster Yosef Maklada, Director of the Statnet Research Institute, is 5.9%.
