Germany: A Haven for Jewish Immigrants

October 15, 2014

Increasing numbers of Jews from all over the world are moving to the German capital. But while Berlin’s Jewish community is swelling, Jews in other European countries are facing growing hostility and opting to immigrate to Israel.


The repercussions of the recent Israel-Gaza conflict are even being felt in Europe. Anti-Semitic demonstrations took place in recent months in London, Paris and Stockholm, often resulting in skirmishes. Recent years have seen Germany become a popular destination for Jewish immigrants. The younger generation in particular has been flocking to Berlin.
