The Choices of a New Generation

By Andrew Silow-Carroll

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2000

The author reviews and sheds light on Lisa Schiffman's book on Jewish identity, "Generation J." In the book, Schiffman discusses how "Generation J, is moving away from Judaism because it is in search of clarity, and clear-cut answers from religion. While many in Generation J are frustrated with the ambiguity they feel from their religion, Schiffman asserts that this emotional ambiguity can be holy, because it is what makes us analyze the world around us, and leads us to figuring out our own identities.
