New York — In a unique
survey of 71 American Jews
who had gone to Israel and
then returned to the United
States after an extended stay,
most said that they had come
back because of lack of pro-
fessional opportunities, the
difficulties of daily life, and
estrangement from certain
aspects of Israeli society.
Nevertheless, they also felt
overwhelmingly that the
American Jewish community
should promote aliyah.
The 24-page survey, a joint
undertaking of the American
Jewish Committee's Institute
of American Jewish-Israeli
Relations and its Jewish
communal affairs depart-
ment, was released in a pam-
phlet titled To Israel and
Back: American Aliyah and
Return Migration. It con-
cludes that the participants'
personal religious and Jewish
communal commitments in-
tensified after their return to
the United States.
Heightened Jewish self-
consciousness after their ex-
perience in Israel was a typi-
cal reaction.
For a majority of those who
returned, Israel appeared to
have become more central to
their lives than before be-
cause they had made per-
sonal friends in the country,
and Israeli culture continued
to influence their lives.
Only a small minority indi-
cated a less positive attitude
toward Israel after their re-
turn. They were also nearly
twice as likely as before to
follow Israeli news more
closely.
The authors of the survey,
Chaim I. Waxman, professor
of sociology at Rutgers Uni-
versity, and Michael Appel, a
student at the University of
Michigan's graduate program
in social work and anthropol-
ogy, point out that the re-
spondents indicated that
their contributions to the
United Jewish Appeal and
their purchases of Israel
Bonds had increased. Only a
small minority (12.7 percent)
stated that they would per-
sonally discourage others
from making aliyah.
In this connection, it is of
interest that less than half of
the respondents had gone to
Israel with an initial com-
mitment to making aliyah.
The majority had immigrated
with the intention of explor-
ing aliyah as only one of
their objectives. Most said
they had gone to Israel be-
cause they thought the
Jewish State would provide
them with the opportunity to
reinforce their commitment
to Judaism and their desire
to participate in a Jewish
society.
Thus disenchantment with
Israel as a whole was not a
factor in their return, which
was rather primarily eco-
nomic and familial in nature.
The authors conclude:
"Israel makes valiant (and
usually successful) attempts
