Abstract :
The article provides a critical survey of the difficulties immigrants from the former USSR face in getting integrated in Israeli society and of the debate this has raised in Israel in religious (orthodox and liberal) and secular circles. Special attention is given to the situation of those immigrants who are Christians and have to cope with the ruling laws on citizenship and religious identity.
