Looking at three generations of women of Moroccan descent - mothers who immigrated to Israel in the 1950s and continued to give birth after their arrival; their daughters who came to Israel as children and married there; and their granddaughters who were born in Israel and became mothers in the 1990s - this study examines expressions of intercultural transition in respect to parenting and child rearing. This in order to identify models of motherhood and parental performance in each generation, as well as the intercultural "mix" used in constructing them.
