This article provides a descriptive snap shot of Jewish, young adult children of the immigrants from the former Soviet Union, now living in the New York Metropolitan area. By exploring their communities, friendship networks, patterns of language retention and acquisition, and the ways in which they construct their Jewish identity, this article seeks to understand how this new "second generation" is being incorporated into American, and American Jewish life.
