Israelis in the United States

By Bruce A. Phillips, Steven J. Gold

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1996

This article presents a profile of Israelis in the United States based on a wide range of demographic and sociological studies. The authors focus on three related topics: the demographics of the immigrant population - its size and composition in terms of age, family structure, occupational and ethnic characteristics; the motivation of those who choose to leave Israel; and the Israelis' adoption of American life. The authors ask whether the Israelis are becoming a visible American-Jewish subgroup, or if they remain a marginal group who see their presence only as a temporary sojourn?
