How Do You "Jew"? Personality and Participation Decisions Among Young American Jews
America's Jewish youth are a prize audience for Jewish communal activities around the country. The author shares results from a survey of young Jewish adults, showing that these individuals are by and large adventurous but easy to disappoint, interested in finding meaning but unsure where to look, and proud of their Jewish identity but wary of traditional Jewish settings. The author recommends that Jewish programming be high-quality, varied, and in familiar settings, and she encourages preliminary feedback, informational marketing, and specialized activities. Ultimately, finding more points of connection to this age group will strengthen Jewish communities for generations to come.
