In order to understand the geographical distribution of the immigrants of the 1950s and the government policy that produced it, one should be familiar with the geographical distribution of the population on the eve of Israeli independence in 1948 (for a thorough discussion of this subject, see Kellerman 1993). This distribution was shaped by pre-State waves of immigration that began in 1882. The year 1882 marked the renewal of Jewish settlement in Palestine. Until then there were organized Jewish communities in only four cities in Palestine: Jerusalem, Tiberias, Safed, and Hebron.
