“Israel is a microcosm of the problems here in the U.S. In Israel, there are problems between Arabs and Jews, the religious and non-religious, and the many different Jewish ethnic groups,” a leading Israeli social scientist said today in announcing the publication of Israel’s first social science journal in English.

Dr. Fred Lazin, Director of the Hubert Humphrey Center for Social Ecology, part of Israel’s Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, announced the Center’s publication of the new journal, “Israel Social Science Research” during a luncheon at the New York offices of Robert Arnow, president of American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

Lazin described the journal as “filling a gap, bringing Israel’s social science research to other social scientists around the world.” The premier issue of the journal, edited by A. Paul Hare, includes articles on the Israeli family, on civil-military relations and on differences in attaining status for Israeli Jews of European-American origin and Asian-African origins.
