The Jewish inability to become fully emancipated in Europe and recurrent waves of anti-Semitism in eastern Europe, and to a lesser degree in western Europe, stimulate emigration. A small number of eastern European Jews and Jews from Arab lands immigrate to Palestine; the vast majority of Jews either remain in eastern Europe or migrate to South Africa or to other western hemisphere locations, including North and South America. Jewish settlement in Palestine takes place in mostly rural areas.
