Jewish Identity and Ethnic Ambivalence: The Challenge for Clinical Practice

By Barbara Breitman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1983

For many Jewish clients, these conflicts around masculinity and femininity are often just below the surface. They affect individual self-esteem and dramatically interfere with parenting and marital relationships. During this period of profound social change in male-female relationships, we are more vulnerable, as Jews, to current stresses to whatever extent, subtle or overt, we view ourselves as less than ideal men and women. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, 60: 2.
