In B.A.S. Relief: Antecedents ofJewish Ethnic Relationships in Israel

By Eliezer D. Jaffe, Steve Zipperstein

World Zionist Organization (WZO), 1981

This article examines four main historical factors which the authors feel have contributed to current Ashkenzi-Sepharadi relationships in Israel. These factors include the creation of Jewish “diasporas” resulting from exile and worldwide dispersion, the attitude and relationship of the European Zionist movement to Jews in Arab lands, the roots of ethnic conflict within the Jewish community in Mandatory Palestine (the Yishuv), and the social impact of large waves of Oriental immigrants to Israel in the years immediately after the creation of the state.
