This chapter reviews the book A Home for All Jews: Citizenship, Rights, and National Identity in the New Israeli State (2016), by Orit Rozin, translated by Haim Watzman. In A Home for All Jews, Rozin tells the complex story of an emerging society that absorbed hundreds of thousands of Jews during the first decade following independence. Rozin shows that the immigrants came not only in search of a home, but an identity as well. She also examines the mutual affinities between the struggle for civil rights and the shaping of national identity, as well as the connection between state and society and between nation-building and the formation of a state. Topics include the marriage of girls at a tender age, and the struggle that led to the adoption of the Age of Marriage Law in 1950; the campaign against the restrictions on travel abroad; and how nongovernmental organizations influenced the shaping of national identity and the perception of citizenship.

Keywords:   Citizenship, Israel, Orit Rozin, Jews, immigrants, civil rights, national identity, nation-building, marriage
