All the non-Jewish and Israeli gathered demographic indicators have shown Israeli-born migration to the U.S. to be a relatively modest phenomenon.  The recently published New York Jewish Community Study may have indicated a decline or stagnation in the number of Israeli-borns in New York this past decade.

The new survey found that in 2011, 29,000 Jews were living in the eight-county New York area, approximating the 31,000 found in 2002.  This may be an indicator confirming the relatively low out-migration of Israeli natives from Israel.  A long deferred national Jewish population study could confirm this important trend for American and Israeli Jewry.
