When the State of Israel was founded in 1948 it was seen as the longed-for end to the wandering and oppression which had characterized the Jewish diaspora over the centuries. For various reasons, however, one per cent of the Israeli population chooses to live abroad. In this fascinating study, the author looks at emigrants' reasons for leaving and their relations with Israelis who have not left and with Jewish & non-Jewish communities in countries in which they settle, providing a major contribution to the study of the Israeli diaspora and our wider understanding of migration & transnational identity.
