This study surveyed hundreds of young Jewish adults in an effort to understand the widespread volunteerism among this generation of Jews, and to assess the potential of Jewish service programming to welcome and engage them. Though these findings form only the first part of a more conclusive longitudinal study currently underway, there is already much for the Jewish community to learn from the preliminary results.
