I am interested in measurment and structual issues such as religious and mystical experience, religious motivation, prayer, God concept and the relations between such concepts with personality, cognitive and social psychology oriented variables. I am also interested in comparative research in particular between Jewish samples (religious, traditional and secular) with samples of other religions and traditions. I am also interested in the relatively new field of religion and spirituality at the workplace and in social / oranizational psychology with the psychology of religion.
