Chapter Summary

This chapter examines migration characteristics and the main demographic and social traits of Israelis in the United States. It focuses on several dimensions: the origin of the Israelis, i.e., whether they were born in Israel or elsewhere, immigrated to Israel and later moved on to the United States; time of arrival in the United States; their age and gender profile; family patterns; and areas of settlement in the United States. Israelis immigrate to the United States at young ages. The large majority of American Israelis were in their twenties and thirties when they made their move. American Israelis display a conspicuous preference for settlement in the northeastern quadrant of the United States and, to a lesser though still appreciable extent, in the western part of the continent. The findings provide an essential infrastructure for the analysis of the emigrants' acculturation and social and economic success in their new country.
