Immigration to Israel likely will hit a 20-year low in 2004. Only some 20,000 people are expected to make aliyah this year, though the number of youth visiting Israel has surpassed pre-intifada levels, according to the Jewish Agency for Israel. Immigration from France and Eastern Europe showed the largest percentage increases: In the first nine months of 2004, French immigration jumped by 18 percent to 1,904, while Eastern European immigration rose 44 percent to 238.
