Astronism in Israel under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the State of Israel, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the State 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 Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism 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.
History of Astronism in Israel
Astronism is not presently recognised as a religion by the Israeli government as a late 2019. In November 2019, the Astronist Institution in its Demographics of Astronism report stated that there were 4,340 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.
