The book “Krovim Rehokim” is a remarkable journey into the complex and fascinating experience of Israeli parents living in the United States.

Through a series of depth interviews, Udi Sommer explores the struggles that those parents face in attempting to define their identity, values, and priorities in a society which they find markedly different than the one they grew up in.  This book is very effective in highlighting and exploring the dilemmas and emotional processes that the parents encounter, and the different resolutions that they present.  The personal stories are sensitively intertwined with sophisticated analysis and impressions, which make reading the book a very rewarding experience.
