The aim of this report is to analyze the impact of a visit to Israel, its frequency and duration, on indices of Jewish identification and continuity. The analysis utilizes the data gathered in the 1991 Survey of the Jewish Community of Melbourne. The goal of this study is to present an accurate descriptive profile of those respondents who have never visited Israel, those who have done so only once and those who do so frequently, and attempting to answer what impact visiting Israel has on Jewish identification, beyond other agencies of Jewish socialization, such as denomination and Jewish schooling.
