Astronism in Israel refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the State of Israel. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Israel, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Israel oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Israel is split into six administrative districts and is set to hold two Grand Observatories; one in the capital city of West Jerusalem and another in the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Israel including:
- Astro-Israeli philosophy
- Astro-Israeli religion
- Astro-Israeli spirituality
- Israeli astroncy
- Israeli Astronism (Hebrew: הֶאָרָה)
- Israeli astronomical religion
- Israeli Cosmism
- Israeli space religion
History of Astronism in Israel
Astronism is not presently recognised as a religion by the Israeli government as a late 2020. In December 2020, the Astronist Institution in its Demographics of Astronism report stated that there were 5,854 Israeli Astronists.
Israel's tolerance for religious minorities is fairly positive excluding minorities that involve themselves in the political discourse. Therefore, Astronists in Israel are considered as generally free to practice and profess their faith.
Astronist content and materials are not currently translated into Hebrew which poses a significant barrier for Israelis to access information about Astronism.
