Israel has experienced several streams of immigration since 1948. The first was from postwar Europe. That was followed by the arrival of Jews from Asia, North Africa, and, after 1967, a smaller group from the West (especially the United States). In the 1990’s, a large flow of immigrants came from the Former Soviet Union and a smaller group from Ethiopia. Growing cultural differences (ethnic origin, social class, gender roles, language, and religion) along with Israel’s large refugee population have put the country on a different trajectory from that of American Jewry.
