Older English-Speaking Immigrants in Israel

By Edward Prager

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1985

Notwithstanding the increasing interest of gerontologists in the voluntary relocation of the aged, the phenomenon of immigration to Israel by English-speaking elderly has received scant empirical attention. Using a person-environment congruence framework within which to study dimensions of adaptation, the author reports on, and discusses the meaning of data collected from 223 older English-speaking relocaters to Israel. A social work practice implication with respect to preparing elderly for their move is noted. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.61 no.4, Summer 1985.
