Catalogue of educational materials on Jewish self-identification of Russian-speaking Jews

Catalogue of educational materials on Jewish self-identification of Russian-speaking Jews

In 2008, a group of scholars from Ben-Gurion University, Tel Aviv University and the Russian Academy of Sciences completed a review of educational materials on the topics related to forming and advancing the Jewish identity of Russian-speaking Jews.

They analyzed existing educational literature in the Hebrew, English, Russian and German languages, and created a catalogue of all available resources focused on Jewish identity of Russian-speaking Jews.

Genesis Philanthropy Group provided financial support for the project.

Goals and Objectives

  • Create a unified, up-to-date database of published resources which can be used by educational organizations as they develop programs strengthening the Jewish identity of Russian-speaking Jews in Israel.
