Survey of Russian Jewry

In a survey of Russian Jewry conducted by the Institute for Jewish Studies in the CIS, Russian Jews said they have a strong Jewish identity which is connected neither to religious observance nor Zionist ideology.  Only 9 percent thought it essential to accept the principles of Zionism, while 37 percent deemed this desirable. But 42 percent said that belief in Zionism was unimportant.

For more on this survey, see Haaretz.
