Chapter Summary

The uneven distribution of the resources, including education, employment, and income, among the inhabitants creates social stratification. Through migration, people aspire to professional advancement, a higher income, and a better quality of life. Acculturation and socioeconomic mobility in a new country are reflected in housing characteristics. Immigrants purchase a home according to their economic status in the destination country and the extent to which their settlement is permanent. Both the United States and Israel allow dual citizenship, Israeli emigrants do not need to renounce their Israeli citizenship or vacillate about the matter in order to be naturalized; most remain citizens of both countries. The successful American Israelis are divided into two groups, those who choose to settle in the United States for the long run and those who return to Israel. To a large extent, whose attainments are less auspicious are more inclined to stay in the United States.
