Israeli and Russian Jews

Gendered Perspectives on Settlement and Return Migration

(p.127) Chapter 7 Israeli and Russian Jews
Gender and U.S. Immigration

Steven J. Gold

University of California Press

This chapter references the literature on gendered settlement preferences. It stresses the importance of comparing the status and employment opportunities of immigrants in the United States with what they might possibly return to in their home countries. One section provides a comparison of two groups of well-educated White middle-class immigrants: Russian Jewish and Israeli Jewish immigrants. The common factor between these two groups is the importance they place on their religious-ethnic identity as Jews. The chapter is able to determine that what these immigrant men and women left back home serves to be crucial in their assessments of their life in the United States.

Keywords:   gendered settlement preferences, employment opportunities, religious-ethnic identity, Russian Jewish, Israeli Jewish
