I can't speak for Israel but here in the state among Observant Jews, there is ALWAYS on Shabbat and Holidays a Shabbas Goy. That is where the whole idea comes from that nonJews serve Jews for when they are not suppose to "work". But since many shuls in the states are Reform or Conservative or something else, they have no requirement to have a Shabbas Goy. The Talmud(s) are a huge work (there are two) and much is Inferred from them. Which is why you have different minhags or customs depending on the community. But the bottom line as someone put it is why are there Shas in the government unless Israelis WANT this?
