Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

The great Jewish exodus from the Former Soviet Union (FSU) has generated the reconstitution of a large Jewish presence of the same origin—mostly in Israel, the US, and Germany. Professor DellaPergolla reexamines the main patterns of international migration and its influence on major demographic, socioeconomic, and identificational characteristics of FSU Jewry. Educated in Italy and Israel, Sergio DellaPergolla is a professor at the Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry in The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the author of more than 20 books and 90 articles, and widely acknowledged as the leading authority in the demography of the Jewish population all over the world.

Co-sponsored with the Harriman Institute of Columbia University.
