Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Very few societies in the world are as multi-ethnic as the Israeli society. It is impossible to understand the Israeli society, its specificity and uniqueness without considering its ethnic division.
Primarily it includes the two big ethnicities of Jews and Arabs, and two other ethnic minorities, the Druzes, and Cherkees. But what renders this society so unique is the division among the Jews themselves. Contrary to the predictions of its founding fathers, the State of Israel has become a multi-cultural society with old and new ethnic groups demanding recognition. No more a melting pot, not merely a Jewish society divided into Ashkenazim and Sephardim, but rather a diverse society. Old traditions have been revived and Yemenites Jews, Maghreb Jews, Buckaran, Georgian and Russian groups, Ethiopian and Iraqis are cultivating their original cultures.
