The recent television series of Israel's national television channel - "HaTsarfokayim", the "Franco (maro) cains" - has shown us how the Israelis - at least some journalists - perceive olim of France. Or, rather, only see them through the identity prisms of Israeli society ...

What are these prisms, generally unknown to the natives of France?

To deepen this question, Dialogia has commissioned a national survey that reveals where the lines of the identity break are passing. We will examine the essential features.

How do the olim of France find their place in this symbolic classification and what challenges does it pose to their own identity?

Rather than feeling lost, could they help to force existing divisions, to invent a new way of being, useful to the whole society?

It is a reflection on these issues that Dialogia wants to contribute.
