Substitute Thomas Muller missed a chance to extend the lead when his late penalty hit the post.
Israel’s Yonatan Cohen’s then saw his 94th-minute penalty saved.
It followed a challenge by Nico Schlotterbeck but keeper Kevin Trapp, who came on at the start of the second half, made a fine stop.
Germany have won all their games since last summer’s European Championship.

Germany will look to make it nine wins in a row on Tuesday when they face the Netherlands in a heavyweight friendly in Amsterdam (19:45 BST).
