How widespread is public wifi in hotels, public places, coffee shops, trains, buses, or even whole cities in Israel? Also, are they generally password protected (like many coffee shops in the USA)?

    SIM cards with data are super cheap in Israel, so there's really little reason to bother with WiFi. – JonathanReez Supports Monica Mar 9 '16 at 9:18

The amount of free wifi in Israel is ridiculous. Egged buses have it most of the time. Gas stations (at least Paz and Dor Alon) have it. Tel Aviv has municipial wifi. The list is endless. I had the good luck to never need a password. Others might have a different experience, I guess this differs from place to place.

    It is indeed ridiculous amount - I dare to say that more than any other country I have ever visited .Also Haifa has all the beach area covered (almost 10 years ago - the First municipality to do that ) , As well as Jerusalem Central areas. Almost every Coffee shop, Restaurant, mall , and recently - Taxis . Almost in every residential building you can find one or more open wifi. I think it is due to the billing plan of the companies there that actually do not count traffic... – Obmerk Kronen Apr 16 '16 at 3:22

in Tel Aviv ,Jerusalem and Haifa you have free Wifi provided by municipality. Their speed are not greatest but you can download your mails and chat on your whatsapp, also most of the coffees has usually free wifi for clients.

I would add that hospitals in Israel also have free - non-password protected - Wi-Fi. And free recharging stations.

(I can't guarantee that ALL of them do, but so far I haven't found one that doesn't.)
