It is crucial that Jewish youth recognize that Jewish values are relevant to their lives, especially in a climate of ever decreasing familiarity with Jewish custom and culture. Programming for Jewish young adults should provide experiences for encouraging stronger Jewish identification and increase knowledge so that these individuals can see the connections between their Jewish heritage and the idealistic movements of their generation (such as civil rights and Peace Corps). Parents also need to be involved in their children's formative Jewish experiences and can be engaged by Jewish community centers on this level. The Jewish center can be a vital source of both formal and informal Jewish experiences for the entire family.
