Chapter Summary

At the present writing, Israel and the United States are home to the two largest Jewish concentrations in the world. The Jewries of Israel and the United States are not only the demographic mainstays of world Jewry but also the most important centers of Jewish culture and religion, each with its own complexion and style. The relationships between Israel and American Jewry are strong and tight in ways unprecedented among other religio-ethnic diasporas. The emigration of Israelis to the United States itself reflects some of the changes that each of the societies, the Israeli and the American-Jewish, has been undergoing, as well as period-related effects. If so, the American Israelis are a microcosm through which each of the societies are understood specifically and major contemporary social phenomena are mediated by the spatial mobility of people and, in turn, of human capital and cultural patterns generally.
