Department for Israel and the Jewish Communities studies

The Department for Israel and the Jewish Communities studies deals with a wide range of issues related to the study of history, politics, economics, social dynamics and social processes in modern Israel. In addition, numerous researchers of the Department study various processes currently taking place in the Jewish community of Russia.

Our scholars actively participate in the institute, all-Russian and international conferences on these subjects. Moreover, the Department works in partnership with other institutions (the Israeli Embassy in Russia, the Russian State University for the Humanities, Institute of Asian and African Studies of the Moscow State University, the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, the Jewish Museum, the Institute for National Security Studies (Tel Aviv), etc.), independently conducts conferences, "round tables" and meetings with experts on issues related to the activities of the department.

The researchers of the department actively publish their works in various periodicals, in particular those reviewed by the Higher Attestation Commission; almost every year individual monographs are published.
