Mass "Aliyah" - A Thing of the Past?
The Middle East Institute, Summer 1989
The question of whether mass aliyah (Jewish immigration to Israel) is a thing of the past can be answered, at least in part, with reference to the considerable information that has accumulated about its characteristics in recent years. Aliyah is an outcome of the action of definable factors operating with a certain regularity in three spheres: the World System, Diaspora Jewry, and Israeli society. The most significant of these factors evidently relates to the World System and its stratification in the realms of political power, economic development, and individual liberties. A realistic perception of Israel's place In the World System in an era of attenuated ideology, could deepen our understanding of past migration movements and enable a proper deployment for those of the future.
