A million and a half Israelis struggle with Hebrew

Survey finds that difficulties in Hebrew prevent many immigrants from using government services and hamper them when they need medical services • Some 200,000 people avoid using government services because of language difficulties • Meanwhile, 68% of the population believes Arabic should be taught in Jewish schools and 70% believe government forms should be available in Hebrew and Arabic.
