The real reason for the uptick in new immigration to Israel is the opposite directions the USA and Israel are heading.
Everywhere one looks in the USA, inflation is destroying jobs and savings. Many young families are barely scraping by. President Biden’s dementia is getting worse. Most importantly for Jews, antisemitism is on the rise in both the leftwing and rightwing.
Young Jewish Americans that have a connection to Israel are realizing their future is not in America. Despite the real challenges in Israel, in the coming decades, prospects for real advancement and security as a Jew are far better in the Holy Land than the USA.
Ultimately, unless something changes in America’s trajectory, aliyah to Israel will only go up. In my opinion that’s a good thing.
