Youth and the Continuity of Generations: Implications for Practice

By Milton Goldman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1961

The author responds to Kenneth Keniston's "Youth and the Continuity of Generations", found in the same issue of the Journal of Jewish Communal Service. Contrary to Dr. Keniston's claims, Goldman argues that the youth of the early 1960s are politically motivated and engaged in the world around them. Families continue to be the primary transmitter of values, and in the face of the changing world that Dr. Keniston describes, the family - not the public at large, must be supported and relied upon to generate the moral character of American society. The author suggests that the field of social work must critically examine itself in order to maintain its relevance and to continue to supplement the essential work of the modern family.
