This piece explores the culture of Do-It-Yourself it applies to young American Jews who have reinvigorated Jewish life in their own unique way. The piece emphasizes the historical and cultural tradition within Judaism of re-imagining and forging one's own path as a natural link to the present day activities of young American Jews. The author concludes by affirming the importance of social media in influencing this newfound movement within Judaism.
