Anne,  that was always an interesting question for me.

I should tell you that there were one more reason, Jews returned back and that is they did not like it here...

Here is an interest article on this topic by Doctor Jonathan Sarna we have it at our Bessarabia website  (with permission of Dr. Sarna):
"The Myth of No Return: Jewish Return Migration to Eastern Europe, 1881-1914"

On a personal note, my great grandfather  Shloyme was one who did not like, because he had to work here in a shoe factory on Shabbat.  Returned back  and died from hunger during WWII.
