On April 20 Evgeny Tartakovsky (PhD, Senior Lecturer, Tel-Aviv University, The School of Social Work) took part in the "Culture matters" research seminar with the report on "Psychological characteristics of Russian Jews: values, identities, and emigration intentions".
This lecture reviewed the results of recent studies examining the psychological characteristics of Jews living in Russia. The first study has investigated the differences in the personal value preferences between Jews and Russians. The second study has investigated the psychological and sociodemographic factors affecting emigration intentions of Russian Jews. The study results were discussed in light of the theory of human values and the value congruence paradigm.
