Course Description

ONLINE: When we think of immigration to Israel, we tend to think about Jews. However, hundreds of thousands of non-Jews have also immigrated over the past 75 years, most of them through the Law of Return, which was originally intended for Jews, but some through other legal means. These people include: immigrants from the former Soviet Union, migrant workers primarily from the Philippines, refugees and asylum seekers from Lebanon and Africa, and Hebrew Israelites from the U.S. How has this happened? How have they been welcomed, and what are the various attitudes toward their presence in the country? This lecture-based course will explore this phenomenon and the issues it raises. Students will gain insight into the process of immigrant absorption when the identities of the immigrants do not match those of the host country. | Lecture + Q&A.
