Is My Heart in the East if I am in the West?: A Study of Israelis in Los Angeles

By Anna Schwarz

Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion School of Jewish Communal Service, April 2009

Israelis have been living in the United States since the establishment of the state of Israel. However, the Jewish communities in which these Israelis live know very little about why they are there or what they are doing within the community. The study tries to understand the Israeli community in Los Angeles, a community that has not been studied in over 12 years. The study surveys 175 Israelis living in Los Angeles to assess which Jewish communal activities they are involved in and what kinds of connections they feel to other Jews and Israelis in Los Angeles.
