Immigrant Study
Wins Israel Prize
for Judith Shuval

Judith T. Shuval, research as-
sociate at the Israel Institute of
Applied Social Research, has been
awarded the Israel Prize for the
Social Sciences for her book, "Im-
migrants on the Threshold." A
chapter of the book is based on
the paper for which she was
awarded the Helen L. DeRoy
Award of the Society for the Study
of Social Problems.
The book, published by Atherton
Press, a division of Prentice-Hall,
is the first large-scale empirical
study of the adjustment problems
of immigrants. Dr. Shuval reports
on the attitudes and behavior of
almost 2,000 people from 20 coun-
tries during their first year in
Israel.
In a letter to Helen DeRoy, well-
known Detroit philanthropist, Dr.
Shuval expressed her appreciation
to Mrs. DeRoy for her "part in the
earliest stages of this research."
American - born and educated,
Dr. Shuval received her PhD from
Radcliffe College in 1955 and
teaches in the sociology depart-
ment of the Hebrew University,
Jerusalem. Since 1949, she has
lived and engaged in research in
Israel, working in the fields of
immigration, acculturation a n d ,
more recently, medical sociology.
The Institute for Applied Social
Research conducted an indepen-
dent study of the adjustment of
immigrants to Israel back in 1949
and 1950, but lack of funds brought
an end to the study just as the
field work had been completed.
Grants from several foundations
and from UNESCO permitted an-
alysis of the study almost 10 years
later, and Dr. Shuval's book re-
ports the result of the investiga-
tion.

side Kasrilevke," tales of the
author's pilgrimage to his legen-
dary home town, a town now trans-
planted to Broadway in "Fiddler
on the Roof." "Inside Kasrilevke"
will be published by Schocken
Books on Sept. 20.
Kasrilevke symbolizes any one
of hundreds of Jewish towns in
Eastern Europe fifty, sixty, and
seventy years ago. Sholom Alei-
chem portrays the essence and
vitality of a Kasrilevke in transi-
tion from the old, isolated commu-
nity to a more modern town which
has trains and tramways, hotels
and restaurants, and even a theater
featuring an actor from America.
Characterizations of the many in-
habitants of Kasrilevke, and the
situations which they live through,
are told with a Yiddish humor of
which Sholom Aleichem is the
supreme exponent. The humor of
inversion, of self-analysis and in-
trospective satire, the humor used

80-year-old rabbi who leads the
Kasrilevkites from profound des-
pair after the "great fire" of Kas-
rilevke, to rebuild their beloved
city.
