Peoplehood: What Students Can Learn and Teach

By Wayne L. Firestone

United Jewish Communities (UJC), November 2007

Jewish students today study abroad, participate in Birthright-Taglit, and volunteer around the world, meeting Jews from all different backgrounds and experiences and are transgressing communal divisions and distinctions that previously defined the Jewish world. Firestone discusses Jewish identity as defined by choice and moves to explain that college campus Hillels are re-evaluating the most effective ways of reaching out to Jewish students whose Jewish identities are defined by choice.
