Study: Jews leaving mixed cities

| |

Figures presented by the conference’s organizers show that the city of Lod saw a 24% rise in the number of its Arab residents from 2003 to 2009, while the number of Jewish residents dropped by almost 8%.

A decline is being recorded in the number of Jews in mixed cities, while the number of Arabs is on the rise, according to a study conducted ahead of the Ramla Conference: Between Israel and the Nations.

In the six years during which the research was conducted, some 1,000 Jews left Nazareth Illit (7% drop) while 200-300 Arabs moved to the city (a rise of nearly 40% in the city’s Arab population). In Haifa, the number of Jews dropped by 7,000 from 2003 to 2009.
