Jewish Identity and the On-Coming Generation

By Jay Kaufman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1967

The author discusses challenges in adapting traditional Jewish life and Jewish identity to viability and meaningfulness in the post-Emancipation world. He discusses social, demographic and cultural trends in American Jewry, as broken down into the "Immigrant" generation, the "Arrived" generation and the "On-Coming" generation. The author further explores what Jewish identity means in terms of "identifying with what" and "identifying with whom".
