The study explores the involvement of leadership in the migration decision-making process of North American immigrants to Israel. The results, based on qualitative and quantitative research methods, indicate that more than half of the immigrants in our sample did not attribute much significance to the influence of a specific leader. However, they acknowledged the involvement of several influential figures; some of these leaders worked in Israeli and Jewish organizations and served as opinion or servant leaders and others were veteran immigrants who served as role models. Apparently, leadership in voluntary migration is manifested as distributed leadership and virtual e-leadership.
