Only 18 percent of new immigrants between the ages of 18 and 35 are happy in Israel, a new study found. Among veteran Israelis in the same age bracket, 43 percent are satisfied with their lives in Israel, according to a Hebrew University School of Social Work study, Yediot Achronot reported. The study, conducted for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, is to be presented to the JDC and Israel’s Absorption Ministry to address challenges facing young immigrants.
