Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews the literature on immigration adaptation and Diasporism. It then explains the method used to identify Israeli Jews in the American censuses and this is followed by a presentation of immigrant characteristics. This chapter analyzes the social and cultural mobility of Israeli immigrants as manifested in English language proficiency, citizenship, and educational attainment; and the relationships between length of stay in the United States and attachment to Israel. The Discussion evaluates the empirical findings within a broad theoretical framework of the boundaries of the collective and provides some remarks on the future of the Israeli Diaspora in America.

Keywords: immigration adaptation; Israeli Jewish diaspora; socio-cultural mobility
