Summary/Abstract: The "Polish" aliyah, also referred to as the fourth one, was the first tide of Jewish immigration to Erec Israel that was devoid of ideological motivation. It also exerted a significant impact on the urban development of the Land of Israel, contributing to the emergence of a burgher stratum. This aliyah occurred spontaneously. Its impact on the position of Polish Jews was negligible despite its name, which refers to the country of origin of most of its participants.
