(p.3) Chapter One Introduction
Shifting Ethnic Boundaries and Inequality in Israel
Stanford University Press

This chapter introduces the themes of the book, focusing on the labor market experiences of the new Jewish arrivals. Initially, they were a diverse group. From each country of origin, a number of separate, independent stratification systems were mixed together in Israel's dynamic environment. The Jewish sector that emerged was divided into two groups: “easterners” from Muslim countries, known collectively as Mizrahim, and “westerners” from Christian countries, known collectively as Ashkenazim. This book examines the process of occupational attainment of Jewish immigrants during their first encounter with Israel's labor market.

Keywords:   Israel, Mizrahim, Ashkenazim, Jewish sector, Jewish immigrants
