The study examines whether there are differences in select aspects of family functioning of Eastern and Western families, whether there are differences within the Eastern and within the Western family according to educational level of the husband, and whether the family pattern of the more educated Easterners and Westerners more closely resemble one another than do family patterns of the less educated Easterners and Westerners. The sample consisted of 1,020 Israeli families who lived in four small development towns. One of the important findings, consistent with earlier studies, is that education has a greater impact on Asian/African immigrants than on European immigrants.
