The United States of America rewards diversity and has been a safe haven for people belonging to different cultures as well as ethnicities. Take the example of Israeli-Americans; the people who were born in Israel and later migrated to the West. America has a profound history of having a large community of Israeli-Americans who have made remarkable contributions in some of the diverse fields out there.
Every country on earth vitally benefits from the role of its own people. Immigrants are considered to be the working class who always drive the economic wheel of a country by pursuing successful careers in different fields. However, this is a highly disregarded notion among different cultures who do not want to confine the immigrants to a status. Every individual who is an American – native or not – is entitled to equal rights and responsibilities living in the country.
All communities living in the United States have great roles for the benefit of the nation and along the years, they have proven to this fact again and again. Let us take a close look at the remarkable Israeli-Americans who have made a big difference for the American people. Here are few names to begin with:
