Voices From the Desert: Concerns of Tuscon's Jewish Youth

By Marilyn Goldman Haas, Betty J. Newlon

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1990

A study of the concerns of Jewish youth in Tucson revealed both an inner directedness, evident in their highest-ranked concern for "looks and appearance," and great concern for such global issues as the "homeless and hungry," "Soviet Jewry, " and "nuclear destruction." The percentages of youth indicating particular concerns increased with age, and girls indicated concerns with greater frequency than boys. To counteract destructive societal forces that affect the Jewish family, the Jewish community must address these special concerns of its youth.
