The massive migration of Soviet Jews to Israel, which will represent a 10% population increase over the next few years, will transform the Jewish state demographically, socially, economically, and politically. In contrast to earlier aliyot, this immigration is being handled for the most part by the private and local government sectors. Diaspora Jewry can play a crucial role in helping Israel meet the challenge posed by this aliyah.
