Abstract:

In Studies in Contemporary Jewry 1, 292-315. This paper focuses on some aspects of the movement from free-emigration Western countries to Israel. Although this type of migration constitutes on of the major potential sources of Jewish population growth in Israel comparatively little attention has been devoted in the past to clarifying its characteristics, determinants and implications. A detailed understanding of the factors that generated past Jewish migrations trends is essential if one wishes to gain informed insights on possible future developments.
