Israeli society has been experiencing several processes of change over the past decade, leading to greater pluralism and heterogeneity in numerous important respects such as patterns of collective identity, styles of life, and crystallization of social groups and strata.

The overarching examples of change looked at here in education, health, and income maintenance point to the emergence of new patterns in the operating environment of the social services. Systematic inspection of each of these social systems shows that in order to continue nurturing the Israeli welfare state, it will be necessary to reexamine the objectives, the goals, and the means for attaining them.
