Commitment, Ethnicity and Class as Factors in Emigration of Kibbutz and Non-Kibbutz Populations from Israel

By David Mittelberg, Zvi Sobel

Center for the Migration Studies of New York, Winter 1990

The burden of research done until now suggests that an Israeli Jew's level of commitment is a major predictor of the predisposition to emigrate from Israel. The authors survey this research with a new emphasis on ethnicity and class, and compare it to recent research on emigration from kibbutzim. They point to several factors that affect emigration, such as a rise in mobility and economic anxiety, and notes emigrational differences between Israelis of different ethnicity and class.
