The ultra-Orthodox community of Bnei Brak is the most densely populated city in Israel, according to data published this week by Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics.
Further, the report found that Modi'in Illit - also a haredi stronghold - has the largest number of children in the city compared to the population. The city with the highest percentage of senior citizens over the age of 75 is Bat Yam.
Jerusalem remains Israel's largest city at 901,300 people. The next two largest cities are Tel Aviv-Jaffa (443,900) and Haifa (281,100).
