Abstract:

This article explains the difficulty, particularly for youth, in attaining a highly enriched Jewish quality of life. It describes the barriers that many Jews face when attempting to establish a substantive Jewish identity. The article lays out four specific issues that may act as a hindrance to achieving a life enriched with Jewish values: the constant struggle between Jewish objectives and professional ideology, issues with religious ideology, a divergence in attitudes, and a lack of quality of Jewish staff.
