Jerusalem is now the largest city in Israel, with a total population of 407,000. It is followed by Tel Aviv with 335,000 and Haifa with 230,000. The Jerusalem figure includes the largely Arab areas of East Jerusalem and the Old City, so that Tel Aviv remains the largest all-Jewish center in the country.
