In Jewish Population Studies 19 (Papers in Jewish Demography, 1985), 229-236. In this papers the authors juxtapose two research questions: how do we account for the fact that Jews tend to live with other Jews? And the derivative questions: how do we account for Jewish neighborhoods and for voluntary migration to Israel? Are aliyah and moving into a Jewish neighborhood functional equivalents? Are they variant outcomes of the same underlying forces or are they significantly and perhaps even radically different?
