Israeli expats living in America were once shunned by their homeland for abandoning their country and choosing the comfort of life abroad. They also encountered difficulties adjusting to the Jewish community in their new homeland. But in recent years, Israeli Americans are beginning to play a more prominent role in American Jewish life, and even the negative image Israelis once held toward their compatriots who left the country is starting to fade.
