Non-Jewish Immigrants Outnumber Jewish Arrivals In Israel

Over 27,300 people have made aliyah from January through October of 2019. Some 28,000 immigrants moved to the Jewish state during all of 2018, a record likely to be surpassed by the end of Dec. 2019. Last year also marked the first time in Israel’s history that Jewish immigrants to Israel were outnumbered by non-Jewish immigrants. Such immigrants, coming largely from the former Soviet Union and Baltic states, count Jewish ancestry but are ineligible to marry as Jews under the state-controlled rabbinic court system. According to a recent Israeli media report, 3.3 million people have immigrated to Israel since 1948. Around 44% of them have come since 1990. (VFI News)
