Stop Worrying About Yordim

By Pini Herman

Forward Association, June 6, 2012

Rather than being a one-directional drain on Israel, migration of Israeli-born Jews tends to be circulatory, following the seasons of Israeli migrants’ lives. And this migratory phenomenon has been a great political and economic benefit to Israel as opposed to a drain. Rather than being a negative for Israel, the Israeli “brain drain” and the subsequent repatriation of talent and infrastructure have enabled more of Israel’s talent to remain and return to the Jewish State. Rather than being a problem for Israel, the Israeli-born migratory pattern has been a political and economic boon.
