Peu d’études canadiennes sur les expériences de réinstallation des Juifs russes se sont penchées jusqu’à présent sur les questions d’identité juive et de modification de cette identité avec la migration.
Cette étude ethnique exploratoire est basée sur des entretiens, des discussions de groupe et l’observation des contextes de vie des immigrants avec l’intention de comparer quelques aspects essentiels de l’intégration entre Juifs arrivés directement de l’ex-URSS et Juifs ayant d’abord migré vers Israël.

Metropolitan Tel Aviv, with 2.5 million Jews, is the world's largest Jewish city.

The community of former Soviet Jews in the Greater Toronto Area has considerably expanded over the last 15 years reflecting both immigration from the former Soviet Union (FSU) and re-migration of Russian Jews from Israel.Few Canadian studies of the resettlement experiences of Russian Jews focused on the issues of Jewish identity and its change upon migration.This exploratory ethnographic study included in-depth interviews, focus group discussions and observations of natural contexts of immigrants’ lives with the goal of comparing some key aspects of social integration between direct arrivals from the FSU and secondary migrants from Israel.In 1939, there were 17 million Jews in the world, and by 1945 only 11 million.While in the 13 years following the Holocaust the Jewish population grew by one million, it took another 38 years for it to grow another million.
