"Bros" and "Hos" in Jewish Life Today

By David Bryfman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2009

The author asserts that teenagers today are operating within apparently conflicting value systems and identities. He offers three broad claims about gender in Jewish youth engagement. Drawing on these claims, the author offers these suggestions about how to attract more males and Jewish teenagers to Jewish education and programming: accept that boys will be boys, recruit and train more educators and listen to teenage voices.
