There are certain recurring themes in conversations I've had with American Jews here in Israel; Israeli falafel is outstanding, "Don't Mess with the Zohan" is right about the ubiquity of hummus, peace with the Palestinians would be really nice, and, most importantly, it's weird being around Jews all the time.
38% of all Jews worldwide live in the United States yet we only comprise 2.2% of the total US population. There are possibly more Jews living in America than in Israel yet we're a minority there and the majority here in Israel. American Jewish communities tend to be clustered in specific areas such as the New York metro area and Hollywood; entire swaths of the US are essentially Jew-free zones. So there is a certain connection among American Jews, especially when traversing the gentile regions of the States.
My friend Anna mentioned the other night that she still looks around and thinks "Wow, there are a lot of Jewish looking guys here" before catching herself. The minority outlook is deeply ingrained and does not vanish quickly. Some find a level of comfort in being different and discover that being the majority, and thus no longer "special," is strange. Others revel in finally being part of the majority, which is why many say they make aliyah.
I've had a different reaction, partly from my childhood in a very Jewish area of New York and partly from being Korean. Hanging out with Jews all the time is nothing new and is actually quite normal and comfortable. However, I can't vanish into the crowd here any more than I can in the US.
For example, Shira and I went to the shuk before Rosh Hashanah for groceries. We split up for a bit and went wandering off for sundry foodstuffs. As I went to buy some vegetables, I passed a couple Israeli teenage boys who yelled "China!" at me as I walked past. There was no malice or threat involved; I actually can't figure out why they said it, to be honest. It was just a bit jarring.
So even if I am here surrounded by Jews, I'll still be different. I'll still be a minority. I'm sure it would be the same in Korea, since I am American and Jewish. But this is ok because, in my expert opinion, weird is the new normal.
