Jerusalem, Israel

The outpouring Jews from the Soviet realm began in the 1980s, then crescendoed with the complete collapse of European Communism. In the 1990s, over a million Jews from the former USSR arrived in Israel, stimulating a demand for Russian culture. Philip Kirkorov, for one, became very popular. Note the three languages: English, Russian, and Hebrew. [1999]
