Summary/Abstract: The topic of Jewish emigration from Romania is intensely debated among historians. The way the Romanian communist leaders have understood and responded to the requests of facilitating the emigrations made by Israel, the reasons for which the Zionists were able to act despite the measures taken by the Romanian Communist (Workers) Party and the issue of Romanian Jews „repatriated from Israel " are topics which will be examined in this study. The paper presents the activity of the Zionist movement from Romania, the policy of the Romanian Workers (Communist) Party and of the Hebrew Democratic Committee towards the Zionist movement and the emigration of the Jews until 1948 and after the proclamation of the state of Israel.
