No other people are as geographically mobile as the Jews. This characteristic reflects unique combinations of political and socio-economic push factors in countries of origin and pull incentives at destinations which continue to operate in at a large pace also after the establishment of a Jewish state, namely Israel. The levels, directions, and motivations of Jewish migration in modern times, adaptation of migrants into their host societies, and implications for policy are at the heart of this lecture.
