4 Europe, Latin America, and areas which were previously part of the British Commonwealth. These fluctuations are explained by the fact that Jews from these countries began to immigrate to Israel in substantial numbers only in the late 1960s and early 1970s, which was also the peak period of Western Jewish immigration to Israel (DellaPergola, 1986; DellaPergola, Rebhun, and Raicher, 2000). Note that it takes new immigrants several years to decide to leave for another country. With greater long-term consistency, the share of Israelis born in northern Africa—from countries such as Morocco, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt—gradually decreased, while the share of those born in Asia increased (although not consistently).

The interplay of pull factors in destination countries and hold factors in origin countries affects subgroups of the population differently. It sets in motion people who have weak geographic roots in their countries of residence or who lack strong connections in their places of residence (including family, friends, social involvement, or an ideological orientation) and are not strongly dependent on other family members. It also animates those who can more easily overcome the intervening obstacles that are involved in migration and cope with the challenges of social integration.

Accordingly, this emigration featured a combination of political and security-related push factors with economic and cultural pull factors in the destination countries, the latter playing an increasingly powerful role over the years. Thus, a growing similarity has been evolving between emigration from Israel and the transnational migrations of other groups. Emigration from Israel is voluntary, the emigrants seek personal and self-fulfillment in their destination countries, and they are largely a ‘product’ of world trends of economic integration coupled with the decline of Zionist ideology.
