A Gap of Our Own Generation

By Bethamie Horowitz

Forward Association, June 23, 2006

The author analyzes the confidence young Jews in Generation Y (ages 18-25) have in their religion. She describes this pride and confidence as a great step forward in comparison to the open self-deprecation that many Jewish celebrities publicized regarding their Jewish backgrounds decades ago. The author moves onto discuss reasons for this rise in Jewish pride, including a visible decline in anti-Semitism, and a higher rate of Jewish officials elected into power.
