The Place of Jewish Identity in the Development of Personal Identity

By Herbert C. Kelman

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1977

As part of a colloquium on Jewish education and Jewish identity, the author presents a general approach to the development of personal identity and explores how various group identities may be incorporated into the emerging personal identity of an individual. He hopes that this general scheme will have some implications for the question of how Jewish identity can be built into the personal identity of Jewish children and what role Jewish education might place in this process.
