Introduction

By Charles S. Liebman

Susan and David Wilstein Institute of Jewish Policy Studies (University of Judaism), 1995

In the introduction to this volume, Liebman delineates the parameters of Gitelman's research on Soviet immigrants, which is confined to the third wave (1989-1992) of Former Soviet Union (FSU) immigrants to Israel. He explains that the data is informed by Gitelman's extensive and unparalleled knowledge of the attitudes and behavior of FSU Jews in a variety of settings and over a variety of time periods. Liebman briefly discusses the forces contributing to their emigration and lauds Israel's successful absorption of this community.
