It is the American Jews who actually practice the religion much more than Israeli Jews. American Jews fill synagogues whether they be reform, conservative or orthodox on the Jewish holidays and shabbat. It is the non-orthodox Israelis that don't. Leaving that aside. Whose kidding who, Israelis love the American lifestyle and have been coming here for decades. Big deal the kid says daddy instead of abba. 2 generations ago he would have said pappa or something else.
