Study Asian and Jewish Americans

A new study is underway of Asian and Jewish Americans conducted by Helen Kim, PhD, and Noah Leavitt. The research will be published in a book that will examine the racial, ethnic, and religious identities of Asian-Jewish individuals, couples and families.

We know very little about marriages of racially and ethnically diverse individuals/couples/families. We are looking for a wide range of participants, including those who have children, and those who do not, those who are more religiously involved, and those who are less involved, and individuals from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and other Asian backgrounds. We are also seeking participants who have converted to Judaism, and those who have not, adoptive families, and adoptees. Interviews are completely confidential and anonymous.

The research covers a wide range of subjects including childhood and adolescent experiences, family dynamics, religious and cultural practices, professional involvements, civic and community commitments.

Please fill out this short survey if you are interested in being part of the study. Thank you for being part of this important research.
