(p.183) Chapter Nine Into the Next Generation
Shifting Ethnic Boundaries and Inequality in Israel
Stanford University Press

This chapter considers several explanations for the shift in patterns of ethnic preference. First, the binary classification scheme became less flexible over time. Second, there was a change in gatekeepers from the first to the second generation. While the gatekeepers of the 1950s were largely veterans, teachers were more likely to be new immigrant Ashkenazim who, for a variety of reasons, had stronger interests in discriminating against all Mizrahim and fewer interests in attending to subtle distinctions in westernness among different Mizrahim. This chapter presents a story of routinization, in which a flexible system of ethnic preference established by the first generation of gatekeepers, in response to a set of concerns about identity, became increasingly inflexible, as new immigrants organized their material activity around the patterns established by the first generation.

Keywords:   ethnic preference, immigrant Ashkenazim, binary classification, Mizrahim, routinization
