Initial resettlement assistance and Jewish acculturation are inseparable processes. The attitude of the nest community and the degree of interpersonal cross-cultural contact shape the emigres' view of Judaism in America and influence their future involvement in the Jewish community. Such cross-cultural contact has significant benefits for both Americans and the emigres. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.72 no.4, Summer 1996.
