This chapter examines to what extent the immigrants arrived in Israel with resources and cultural practices already clustered into the binary categories. It assess the argument, common in lay as well as academic work, that one reason resources were distributed along binary lines is that Ashkenazim spoke Yiddish and so could understand each other. This chapter contends that although some of these prodichotomization pressures existed, they may not have been as strong as previously thought, and that the binary categories do not adequately capture variation in attainments among the immigrants.
