Generational Relationships and the Jews: Patterns of Leaving Home, 1930-1985

By Calvin Goldscheider, Frances Goldscheider

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, October 1993

This paper focuses on the residential dimension of parent-child relationships during the younger generation's transition to adulthood. Intergenerational separation is expected eventually, but the question is when? Does such a separation normally occur as soon as possible - close to age 18, when high school is completed - or does separation normally occur as late as possible in a nuclear family structure - at marriage? To what extent have American Jewish young adults participated in the increase in non-family living and have their patterns been distinctive?
