Twentysomething and Jewish: Personal Reflections on Jewish Identity

By Stephanie Bash, Keith Chertok, Debra Nussbaum Cohen, Elise Eplan

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1994

This publication focuses on a generation whose voices are seldom heard in the Jewish community - the "twenty something" generation. It is a collection of personal essays, written by young people who share their frustrations and disappointments and their excitement and sense of fulfillment with Jewish life and the Jewish community. All are engaged in a twofold search: first, for meaningful ways of identifying as Jews, and second, for a sense of place - for community and roots.

Topic: Jewish Identification, Adulthood, Generational Issues, Birth Cohorts

Funder: American Jewish Committee. Susan and Jack Lapin Fund for Jewish Continuity
