By Irene Belozersky

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1990

Immigration, with its accompanying feelings of uprootedness and numerous losses, is a powerful stressor, disrupting the functioning of even the strongest families and individuals. Adjustment to a new society takes the form of a spectrum of physical and emotional reactions. As a rule, families and individuals who functioned well in the Soviet Union will have an easier adjustment in the United States. Age, educational level, and English-speaking ability also influence the ease of adjustment.
