Israel

The State of Israel was created in 1948.  It has land borders with Egypt to the south-west, Jordan to the east, Syria and Lebanon to the north.  It has a sea border to the west with the Mediterranean Sea.  Its capital is Jerusalem.  Since 1948, Israel has been at war on many occasions with its neighbours and has succeeded in extending its territory.  75% of the population is Jewish.  Israel is a highly developed country, has a highly skilled workforce, boasts a very high standard of living and has one of the highest life expectancies in the world.

The first set of stamps in 1948 was entitled “Doar Ivri” (Hebrew Post), as the country’s name had not yet been chosen.  Israeli stamps are trilingual with English, Arabic and Hebrew.  Some of these stamps had languages mixed up, and perhaps this makes them more valuable.
