Israeli citizenship law

Israeli citizenship law regulates who is and can become a citizen of Israel. Citizenship rests on two statutes: the Law of Return, enacted in 1950, allowing every Jew to immigrate to Israel, and the Citizenship Act of 1952, which defines how Israeli nationality could be acquired and lost. The Law of Return has since been amended twice and the Citizenship Act thirteen times.
