Intercultural Conflict Stereotypes

by Avi Mozes-Carmel J.D., Ph.D., Authorhouse
The purpose of this research is to investigate stereotypes as a way of understanding intense interpersonal and inter-group conflict between American Jews and Israeli immigrants living in the larger Jewish community of South Florida. The reasons for this inter-group conflict make for a complicated story. The major assumption being made here is that the conflict can be seen in the stereotypes, prejudices and impressions held by these two groups about themselves and each other. This study also seeks to determine the dominant stereotypes of Israeli immigrants to the U.S., or Yordim, to reach some understanding of the conflict between Yordim and American Jews.
