Identity Issues in the Jewish Adopted Adolescent

By Deborah N. Silverstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1985

Adoption, per se, triggers seven lifelong issues for members of the [adoption] triad. These issues surface at different developmental stages, but all appear to be present in full force during the adoptee's adolescence. These issues, especially the ones involved in identity formation, are painfully increased by the presence of issues regarding Jewish identity and by Jewish laws and attitudes toward adoption. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.61 no.4, Summer 1985.
