An excerpt from the film Project Renewal, produced by the United Jewish Appeal, describes the reasons why the Israeli government decided to embark on a neighborhood rehabilitation project. The announcer tells how in the first three and a half years of the state, an influx of Jewish refugees from Europe and Muslim countries began to flow into the country. As a result, Israels population doubled almost immediately, and over the next twenty-five years, another million refugees followed suit. At first, the immigrants were absorbed into absorption camps, and thanks to the efforts of the government and the Jewish Agency, many of these refugees were able to integrate into the process of settling in the country. However, a significant number of immigrants remain in the absorption camps that later became distressed neighborhoods that highlight the gap and poverty and create a national problem that requires an immediate solution.
