Immersion of emigre children in intensive Jewish education did not succeed in involving their parents in the Jewish community or enabling their families to develop Jewishly. The current approach to resettlement, based on a one-to-one pairing of native-born with New Americans, is not religiously oriented but instead focuses on educational and cultural activities. It is proving to be more successful in integrating New Americans into American Jewish communal life.
