Teenage Boys and Girls: A Jewish World Apart

By Leonard Saxe, Shaul Kelner

May 2001

The authors explain that teenage Jewish boys are rapidly exiting the playing field of Jewish engagement, leaving Jewish adolescent girls to hold the ball. The authors examine some reasons for this shift, basing their conclusions on a study of 1,500 Jewish adolescents. Among the ways in which teenage Jewish boys and girls see the world differently, the authors note that girls tend more socially, and boys more individually.
