On Minority Religions in Israel: But no Baha'i community

Making up 16% of the population, Muslims constitute Israel’s largest religious minority. About 2% of the population are Christian and 1.5% are Druze. The Christian population includes both Arab Christians and Messianic Jews. Members of many other religious groups, including Buddhists and Hindus, maintain a presence in Israel, albeit in small numbers. ...
The administrative center of the Baha’i Faith and the Shrine of the Baha’i are located at the Baha’i World Centre in Haifa and the leader of the faith is buried in Acre. Apart from maintenance staff, there is no Baha’i community in Israel, although it is a destination for pilgrimages. Baha’i staff in Israel do not teach their faith to Israelis following strict policy.
