Ma’abarot, temporary camps that house hundreds of thousands of Jewish immigrants, are established. They are tent villages without paved roads, running water, or electricity. The Ma’abarot are finally closed in 1959. Many of those housed in Ma’abarot are recent emigrants from Middle Eastern Jewish communities.
