A vital objective of bilingual-bicultural education for Soviet Jews is to foster a positive Jewish self-concept while developing Jewish cognition, Jewish language expression and Jewish life skills. People who view themselves as being accepted, respected and loved are prone to develop a positive self-concept. Providing a receptive, respectful and loving environment must be the first goal of Judaic instruction.
