How Americans Integrate in Israel
By HAIM SIIACHTER
About a year ago. on the occa-
sion of the 27th Zionist Congress
which took place in Jerusalem in
June 1968, a preliminary report on
Americans#nd Canadians in Israel
and their mlotives for aliya. under-
taken by Hr. Aharon Antonowsky
and Dr. Judith Shuval on behalf of
the Israel Institute of Applied So-
cial Research. was presented to
the Jewish Agency. The report was
based on interviews with 1672
American and Canadian Jews and
Jewesses who arrived in Israel be-
fore March 1966. and were over 18
years of age at the time of their
arrival. • -
The first report focused mainly
. on the motivations for aliya. It
transpired that 35 per cent of the
American olim were active Zion-
ists before immigration; 26 per
cent were inactive Zionists. and
39 per cent were not members of
any Zionist organization. The mo-
tives for their aliya were unques-
tionably "to contribute to the up-
building of a Jewish homeland"
(90 per cent I, and "to lead a fuller
Jewish life." or "for the sake of
the children, from the Jewish
point of view."
The second report centered on
the problems faced by the respond-
ents since their arrival in the coun-
try and on their confrontation with
these problems. and dealt largely
with their socio - Jewish back-

was devoted to an analysis of the
connections between the integration
of these immigrants into Israeli life
and other factors. such as various
aspects of life before aliya and
their personal experiences after

found integration much easier than
people who had not.
No direct connection was traced
between the present religious ob-
servance of the respondents and
their integration in Israel. How-
ever, those who arrived before
the establishment of the state and
who described themselves as "ob-
servant of Jewish tradition" in-
between the years 1948 and 1956.
Such people integrated equally
as well as the observant olim. No
connection was found to exist be-
