Geographical distribution of the Soviet-Jewish new immigrants in Israel

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The State of Israel is facing now one of the most difficult absorption challenges it has ever had. About 250 000 Soviet-Jewish immigrants have arrived to the country since 1989 and another million are waiting for immigration. A direct absorption plan enables the immigrants to choose their place of habitation. Their concentration in big cities is against the government's plans to direct them to peripheral regions. The current mass-immigration creates an unexpected change in the population and settlement pattern of Israel
