They range in age from 12 to 17 and descend from Jewish families that emigrated from the former Soviet Union to the occupied Palestinian territories. They count the days until their 18th birthday to make a dream come true: emigrating from occupied Palestine!

Statistics show that this is exactly the wish of 54of Israeli youth.

The majority of 18- to 34-year-old Israelis do not trust their government. Furthermore, half of them describe themselves as the "Unlucky generation."

 They say Israel is a transit station for us. In particular, the Russian Jews steadfastly uphold their cultural heritage and even exhibit a reluctance to learn the Hebrew language. Nearly half of these young people consider financial stability and a high standard of living essential, followed by establishing a family and saving for retirement.

The prevalence of this situation is particularly notable in marginalised communities, where discrimination is on the rise. For the children of Jewish immigrants from previous generations, there is always this ambiguity: Why did we immigrate to Palestine? They perceive a lack of viable employment opportunities and a bleak future, as discrimination is pervasive and stability remains elusive.
