in the United Sates, as
revealed in the study,
adversely affects the
understanding of the
Jewish community in the
U.S. by Israeli Jews and
therefore makes their
compatability more
difficult.
Surkis found that most
high schools teach about
American Jewry in only
one course on "Jewish
Pistory in the Modern
Era," in which only a
minimal amount of time
is devoted to U.S. Jewish
history.

NEW YORK — Israeli
students receive a skimpy
and unbalanced view of
the history and
accomplishments of
American Jewry in their
high school studies, due
primarily to the
inadequate material on
the subject found in
Israeli history texts.
This finding ' was
reported by the Israel
office of the American
Jewish Committee, which
released a two-year study
on "Teaching About
American Jewry in
Israeli High Schools."
The study, which was
financed by a grant from
the American Jewish
Committee's Jacob
Blaustein Institute for
the Advancement of
Human Rights, was
conducted by Reuven
Surkis, director of the
Historical Society of
Israel.
In an introduction to the
study, Dr. M. Bernard
Resnikoff, director of the
American Jewish
Committee's Israel office,
pointed out that the poor
information that Israeli
students have about Jews
