American Aliya / Sociological and Demographic Perspectives

By Calvin Goldscheider

Behrman House Publishing, 1974

The article deals with American aliya. The author does not treat all American olim as a single type, but indicates rather their different motivations and personal characteristics. On the basis of previously unpublished data concerning the attitudinal, behavioral, and personal characteristics of olim, the author infers on their level of education, frequency of synagogue attendance, level of ritual observance, and the affiliation of the olim to Zionist organizations.
