This article covers a form of cultural assimilation and spatial policy. For the Christian movements that believe in the necessity of adherence to Jewish laws, see Judaizers.

Judaization (Hebrew: לְגַיֵּיר‬, translit. legayer) or Judaification is a process of cultural assimilation in which a person or a demographic group acquires Jewish cultural and religious beliefs and values.

Personal acculturation

It is the obverse of "de-Judaization", the process observed, for example, in Soviet Russia, where discriminatory practices against Jews gave momentum to their "de-Judaization".[1]

Geopolitical acculturation


Haredization refers to a late 20th- and early 21st-century phenomenon, in which urban and suburban areas of Israel, such as Beit Shemesh, become demographically and politically dominated by Haredim at the expense of non-Haredim (including religious Zionists and Hilonim). The trend is often the subject of protests in various Israeli cities.[2][3][4]
