The Philippine Embassy estimates that there are approximately 39,000 Filipinos working and living in Israel. A large majority is concentrated in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa. There are also a considerable number of Filipinos working in Beersheva, Netanya, Rehovot and  Rishon Lezion however, most of them maintain apartments in Tel Aviv where they normally spend their weekend.
filipinos in israel national dress Religion, has always been a facet of expatriate Filipino workers, and is very pronounced with their awareness of being in Israel.  Filipino worshipers usually flock at St. Anthony Catholic Church along Yefet St. in Jaffa for the Saturday masses at 5:30 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m. Weddings are usually scheduled during the 5:30 p.m. mass. The church which is run by the Franciscan friars can accommodate about 1,500 people at any one time. In Haifa, Filipinos frequent the St. Joseph Church.  In Jerusalem, the Notre Dame Church and the Church of the Terra Sancta.  Saturdays are also the day for worship for some Filipinos who belong to other religious orientations.  Filipinos in Israel practice their faith freely.  

Under Israeli law, foreign workers are only allowed to stay in Israel for a maximum period of five years.  However, they may continue to stay in Israel after five years provided that they are working for the same employer.  Although official working days in Israel commence on Sunday until Thursday, working days for majority of the Filipinos start from Monday until  Friday noon.  

Most of the Filipinos in Israel work as caregivers.  There are also a small fraction who work in hotels and restaurants.  Women outnumber men by 6 to 1.
