Summary/Abstract: The Jews of Romania had to bear difficult times within the communist Romania. The Romanian communist state tried to assimilate the minorities and to erase all differences. Emigration was possible after the Second World War, but the Jews who immigrated to Israel lost their jobs when they decided to leave Romania, together with their properties. The diplomatic relations between Romania and Israel were influenced by the emigration problem of the Romanian Jews. The persecutions of Zionist leaders in Romania together with the periods when emigration was prevented constituted moments of tension in the Romanian – Israeli relations. Often, the Israeli diplomats reminded their Romanian counterpart that the process of emigration had to continue. The process of emigration of Romanian Jews depended closely on the development of Romanian – Israeli economic relations. Almost all Romanian Jews emigrated from Romania during the communist years.
