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]
