The authors draw on results of interviews and focus groups of Generation Y Jews (aged 18-25) around the United States in order to discuss how young Jews see their Jewish identities. Among the authors' findings are: that young Jews see their Jewish identity as one among many identities; that young Jews are very self-confident about their Jewish identities; that institutional awareness is declining; that denominational identification is declining; that informal expressions of Judaism are increasing.
