By Sergio DellaPergola

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 2007

In Studies in Contemporary Jewry 22, 3-43. This essay assesses the changing profile of "Sephardic and Oriental" Jews since the second World War, outlining the overall volume and major directions of Jewish international migrations, and examining patterns of demographic, socioeconomic, and cultural change in the context of absorption and integration process both in Israel and in several western countries. Of particular interest are changes in the composition of immigrants to Israel from Asia and Africa, and their integration into and role in the shaping of Israeli society, as compared with parallel processes among Jewish migrants from those regions in France, the United States, and Latin America.
