Israel represents a unique case of an immigrant society formed on the basis of an ideological movement. This has had a profound impact on the development and organization of sport and has led to the institutionalization of sport within a highly politicized framework. The purpose of this paper is to show how the formation and development of each sport organization is intertwined with Israeli political evolution. In addition, the impact of politics on the organization of sport and the recent movement away from partisan sports organizations are discussed.
