This paper concerns differing value orientations of European and non-European immigrants to Israel. Immigrants from European countries are characterized by a more active value orientation while non-Europeans tend to be more passively oriented. Immigrant who are in Israel for a longer period of time and who have attained a higher level of education tend to be more active. These differences are attributed to a greater amount of contact with Western values and a moving away from traditional value patterns. Immigrants who are more active tend to be more upwardly mobile in their occupational aspirations. However, active non-Europeans tend more frequently to be upwardly mobile in their aspirations than comparable groups of Europeans. These differences apply within class groups of each ethnic division.
