Jewish Adolescents: American Teenagers Trying to 'Make It'

By Charles Kadushin, Leonard Saxe, Archie Brodsky, Shaul Kelner

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), Summer 2000

The authors present results from a study they conducted based on interviews of 1,300 Jewish American teenagers and their parents, designed to ascertain how engaged these teenagers are with the Jewish community. The authors discuss their sample's experiences with Hebrew school, informal Jewish education, and their attitudes towards secular academics, work, marrying another Jew, and raising Jewish children. For many of these teenagers, the authors report, being Jewish is not a major part of their lives. In Agenda: Jewish Education, ed. By Arthur Vernon, no. 13, Summer 2000, p. 3-7
