A Model Assessment of an Émigré Family from the Former Soviet Union

By Anna Halberstadt

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1996

The assessment of an emigre family from the former Soviet Union must be multifaceted, including political, socioeconomic, and cultural factors. A purely psychological approach, which describes emigre behaviors as pathological in contrast to American norms, yields a biased assessment. This article presents the many factors, operating on both the macro and micro levels, that must be included in a comprehensive assessment. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.72 no.4, Summer 1996.
