Israeli law

Owing to its complex and long history of occupation by the Ottoman and later the British empire the system of Israeli law is a complex mix of several legal systems and traditions. It's primarily based on common law and integrates parts of civil law and laws from Judaism and Islam. There is no Constitution but the Basic Laws can be considered as such. Influences on Israeli law range from the civil code of the Ottoman Empire, the Jewish Halakha, even the Muslim Sharia, British common law to German civil law. Canada, US and German Law have had some influence in recent years.

When moving to Israel the most important part are the immigration laws and notably if you're Jewish the Israeli Law of Return (which also applies even if you've never ever set foot on the ground in the Middle East).

Aliyah to Israel

Aliyah is one of the most notable Jewish traditions. The word comes from a Hebrew verb meaning “to ascend” or “going up”. In context, it means the immigration of Jews, from various parts of the world, to the Land of Israel. One who performs this exercise is known as “Oleh” (in case of male) and “Olah” (in case of female). The plural form for those undergoing Aliyah is “Olim” for both males and females.
