SHABBAT, JAN. 10-11, 2019
Ohab Zedek Scholar in Residence Weekend

Dr. Nechumi Yaffe
is a David Hartman Center Fellow and a post-doctoral research fellow at Princeton University affiliated with the Daniel Kahneman Center of Behavioral Science and Public Policy and the University Center for Human Values. She earned a Ph.D. in Political Science from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Nechumi’s research examines, from a social psychology perspective, how identity, social norms, and authority play a role in creating and preserving poverty and focuses on the ultra-orthodox (Haredi) community in Israel, a population currently understudied. Before entering her doctoral program, she was an advisor for the Haredi educational system where she devised the new curriculum in history and wrote the textbook now used by all Israeli Haredi high schools. In 2019 she became the first woman from Israel’s ultra-orthodox community to join the faculty at Tel Aviv University.
