Adjustment Difficulties Experienced by American Students in Israel

By Jacob I. Halpern

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1993

In general, the adjustment difficulties faced by American undergraduate students in Israel are not serious and are lower in magnitude than those experienced by international students in America and by foreign students in other countries. The reason for this may be the special affinity these (predominantly Jewish) students feel toward Israel. A guidebook developed specifically for high-school and college students who plan to study in Israel would be a valuable resource in minimizing the inevitable adjustment difiiculties faced by young people studying abroad. It should address the most common problems faced by students and effective strategies for dealing with them. It is also important that advisors in both America and in Israel of the American students studying in Israel be made aware of the differences in types and extent of difficulties encountered by men and women.
