Chapter Summary

In the decades passed since the end of the World War II the USSR Jewish population experienced constant decline, due to low fertility, aging, assimilation and emigration. Three million-large Russian Jewish entity is currently almost equally divided between three major centers: Israel, the Anglo-Saxon world, and Eurasia. During our research conducted in 2003–2004, we managed to identify at least 14 Jewish identity groups that now exist in the post-Soviet space. The answer whether these identity types could also be applied to the CIS extended Jewish population, which besides the ethnic Jewish core includes the descendents of the mixed marriages and non-Jewish members of Jewish households, is not obvious. Post-Soviet and Western, including the European Jewries have even more in common in their vision of the Land and the State of Israel and their place in Jewish public consciousness.
