The whole world will feel the loss of these holy righteous men... we are so very sorry to have lost them ...

Chaim Levy

Rav Shteinman said that the Jews of France should not rush to Eretz Yisroel, because their children are likely to assimilate with secular society there. There is an article posted on Bechadrei Chadarim (http://www.bhol.co.il/ColumnArticle.aspx?id=78526&cat=4&scat=34) quoting the rabbi of France that this is exactly what has happened to the French immigrants. Instead of holding on to tradition, the youth in Israel have been falling in their emunah and Yiddishkeit. In France, they are holding on. The ones who are totally secular will just drop all identity of Jewishness, so they feel no need to emigrate. But the traditional Jews are mostly getting lost in Israel. Until Mashiach comes, aliyah is not the solution for everyone, it depends on the situation. A close friend who tried to make aliyah and returned knows many who tried and as a result lost their shalom bayis and in many cases their kids went off.
