Many Americans who immigrate to Israel cluster in English-speaking neighborhoods.
My neighbors have included Hungarians, Iraqis, Moroccans, Tunisians, Russians, as well as native-born Israelis. And, over the years, I’ve also known Jews from Romania, Kurdistan, Kafkazia, Albania, Ethiopia, Algeria, Egypt, Columbia, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, Shanghai, India, Switzerland, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Canada, Iran, Norway, Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, South Africa, Georgia, Ukraine, Moldava, Belgium, Latvia, Australia, Brazil, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Gibraltar, Syria, Spain, Uzbekistan…. and probably more.
And our kids are marrying into Yemeni-Yugoslavian, Iraqi, Moroccan, and British families.
Ain’t it great?
