Socio-economic and Demographic Study of Russian-speaking Jews in Israel

Socio-economic and Demographic Study of Russian-speaking Jews in Israel

The socio-economic and demographic study of Russian-speaking Jews in Israel is a joint project of the GPG and the New Israeli Fund (NIF). The study identified the main problems and possibilities for the development of Jewish identity among the Russian-speaking population in Israel.

The study indicated that Russian-speaking Jews are ready to increase the level of their national civic and cultural education and to deepen their connection to the Jewish People.

The study results show that further strategies should focus on:

  • The development of professional leadership in Jewish education and in Jewish community building;
  • The creation of innovative educational methods and materials appropriate for the culturally diverse community from the FSU;
  • The multi-faceted approach to the integration of Israelis from the FSU that takes into consideration their material and spiritual needs.

Goals and Objectives 

  • Identify essential problems and research opportunities for the development of Jewish identity among the Russian-speaking population of the country.
  • Conduct a socio-economic and demographic analysis of the Russian-speaking population in Israel.
  • Analyze existing programs and projects for the Russian-speaking population of Israel.
  • Identify the needs of the Russian-speaking population in Jewish education and Jewish self-identification.
