Assimilation of Israeli Immigrants in the United States and Its Implications for Communal Services

By Charles Auerbach, Mira Rosenthal

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1992

This study of naturalized and non-naturalized Israelis living in New York City found that the vast majority felt a high degree of distance not only from American society but also from the Jewish community. In addition, while most parents were trying to preserve their Israeli cultural roots and identity, their children were embracing American culture. An Israeli niche of social services that is sensitive to the cultural and social needs of the Israeli family is therefore essential.
