The author discusses the unique perspectives and needs of Generations X and Y (ages 25 - 35), whose members tend to distrust authority and organized religion, value individualism, insist on gender and socio-economic equality, and expect material to be free and flexible to their needs. He discusses how Jewish organizations ought to adapt so that these generations will become connected not only to Jewish knowledge but to Jewish communities.
