This chapter examines efforts to persuade American Jewry to contribute funds to projects connected with the immigration to and absorption in Israel of North African Jews during the period 1952–1956. It explains Israel's adoption of an immigration absorption policy called “Ship to Village” and the limited success of the fundraising campaign. It also discusses the views of American Jews that local Jewish communities should be loyal to their own country and the negative stereotypes with regard to North African Jews.

Keywords:   American Jewry, immigration absorption, North African Jews, fundraising campaign, Israel, stereotyping
