About Our Guest:


Dr. Nechumi Yaffe is a faculty member in the Department of Public Policy at Tel Aviv University. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship at Princeton University's Daniel Kahneman Center of Behavioral Science and Public Policy and the University Center for Human Values.   Nechumi’s research examines how identity, social norms, and rabbinic authority play a role, from a social psychology perspective, in generating and perpetuating poverty. Her work focuses on the ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) community in Israel and the USA.   Before embarking on her doctoral studies, she served as an adviser to the ultra-Orthodox educational system, where she wrote a new curriculum and textbook in history for use in all Israeli Haredi high schools.   Nechumi earned a Ph.D. in political science from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She is the first woman from Israel’s ultra-Orthodox community to do so.
