This report examines contemporary Jewish young adults and their attitudes and behaviors towards community service. The study reveals that Jewish millennials, most of whom engage in volunteer work, believe their service can make a difference in the world and in the lives of others. While most of these young adults currently do not connect their service with Jewish values and identity, the findings provide a path forward for Jewish leaders who believe that making this connection is important for strengthening the Jewish community.
