The Jewish Story Season 3, Ep3: Mass Immigration and Ingathering the Exiles – part I

Posted by Mike Feuer on October 22, 2019
Topics: The Jewish Story

In the first two years after Israel’s independence the Jewish population doubled. Such massive immigration put an almost fatal stress on the resources and social fabric of the young state. Before we can discuss the practical implications we need to consider the meaning of kibutz galuyot – the in-gathering of the exiles.
