Boeing aliya
 n.— «As many as 50% of them fit into the category of the “Boeing Aliya”—an expression coined to describe families in which the husband commutes. “It is a quality aliya: They come from a rich country and it’s hard for them to give up the standard of living they were used to,” explains Feldman. The husband leaves his family in Israel and keeps working in France until he can find a job in Israel that allows them to live here without sacrificing their former lifestyle.» —“The Boeing aliya” by Delphine Matthieussent Jerusalem Post (Israel) Dec. 9, 2004.
