Russians Immigrate
In Greatest Numbers

Jerusalem (JTA) — Russians
have now surpassed
Moroccans as the largest
immigrant group in Israel,
according to new population
statistics.
Their ranks have swelled
over the last two years of
mass immigration from the
former Soviet Union, bring-
ing the number of Russian
immigrants in this country
since late 1979 to 650,000.
There are some 500,000
Israelis of Moroccan origin.
Coming up behind them
are Polish Jews, with a
community of 275,000;
Romanians, at 266,000; Ira-
q i s , at 260,000; and
Yemenites, at 100,000.
Israel had 5,058,800 in-
habitants at the end of 1991,
of whom 18 percent were
non-Jewish, the just-
published official statistical
annual says.
A sharp drop in immigra-
tion has halved the
estimated population in-
crease this year, to 2.5 per-
cent.
But over a three-year
period, the country
registered a 14 percent in-
crease in population and
with it a rise in the number
of elderly. About 460,000
Israelis are now age 65 or
older.
The statistics indicate
Israelis are marrying later
and divorcing sooner.

Couples wed in 1991 were
two years older on average
than those marrying in
previous years. At the same
time, divorce rates among
couples married 10 years or
more rose from 8 to 10 per-
cent.
A low birthrate among
Russian immigrants has
pushed down the national
fertility average, the survey
found.
Comparing birth rates
within Israel, the survey
found Jewish women had an
average 2.6 children in 1991,
compared to 4.7 children for
Muslim women.
Although the non-Jewish
population accounts for only
18 percent of the total, 28
percent of all children born
in Israel in 1991 were not
Jewish.
In at least one age
category, the statistics
dispelled a widely held belief
about the preponderance of
single women over men in
Israel.
Unmarried men age 30 to
40 outnumbered unmarried
women 48,900 to 42,600, the
survey found. Past the age of
40, however, the trend
begins to reverse.
Life expectancy for Israelis
continues to be high. Men
can expect an average life
span of 74.2 years and wo-
men 78.4 years, the survey
says.

Democratic Official
Visits Israel

Jerusalem (JTA) — As Mid-
dle East peace talks enter a
delicate transition phase, a
highly placed figure in the
Democratic establishment is
holding private talks here
this week with top Israeli
leaders.
Stuart Eizenstat, domestic
affairs adviser in the Carter
administration and among
those said to be close to Pres-
ident- elect Bill Clinton, has
meetings 'scheduled with
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin and Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres. He will un-
doubtedly report to Mr. Clin-
ton on his talks here.
Meanwhile, Mr. Rabin and
Mr. Peres have decided to
have their designated new

ambassador to Washington
in place when the Clinton
administration takes office.
Itamar Rabinovich will
take up his post at the em-
bassy immediately after the
inauguration of the new
president in January. The
timing marks a change from
a statement made to an
interviewer last week by the
present envoy, Zalman
Shoval, that he expected to
stay until the spring.
Mr. Rabinovich is again
leading the Israeli team in
the bilateral peace talks
with Syria, which resume in
Washington. He is to con-
tinue to fulfil this function
even after assuming his new
diplomatic assignment.
