The author discusses differences between voluntary and involuntary Jewish educational experiences (i.e. youth groups for young adults as contrasted with day schools for young children), basing her conclusions on the results of the UJA Federation study she directed entitled "Connections and Journeys", which examined the connection and engagement of Jewish adults born between 1946 and 1976.
