The Force of Apathy: A Young Voice on Jewish Politics

By Ami Fields-Meyer

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, January 2012

The author, student body president of Milken Community High School in Los Angeles, states that young people remain uninterested in and unknowledgeable about current events. He argues that Jewish professionals who teach, motivate, influence, and interact with Jewish youth must consider a paradigm shift. They must move from focusing solely on spiritual concerns to addressing also the experiential, practical, empirical, and political aspects of what it means to be an American citizen.
