Social Strains and the Challenge of Diversity
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.
