OMG! How Generation Y Can Help Redefine American Judaism

By Steven M. Jacobson

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2005

The author states that Anna Greenberg's illuminating report on issues of faith among Generation Y reveals increasing disillusionment of young American Jews with the dominant institutions of American Jewry. He describes this phenomenon, including what does spark this generation's interest, and concludes that perhaps only with meaningful expressions of Jewishness that relate not to ourselves, but to others, can our institutions reestablish the increasingly elusive value of American Judaism.
