Immigration to Palestine and the United States at the beginning of the twentieth century led to the emergence of two Jewish entities of importance in the Jewish world: the State of Israel and the Jewish community of the United States. Despite the differences that can be found today between these two great Jewish communities, the historical circumstances that led to their formation were similar. It also falsifies our understanding of the great Jewish migration from Eastern Europe at the end of the nineteenth century and beginning of the twentieth. The book arrives at a number of conclusions on the following topics: the place of Zionist ideology in the decision to immigrate to Palestine; the sociodemographic profile of immigrants; emigration from Palestine; the regional distribution of immigrants in Palestine; formation of Zionist immigration policy; and encounters with the majority society.
