Are today's young Jewish adults harbingers of the American Jewish community of tomorrow? Is today's generation of young American Jews distinctive? If this generation is distinctive, and one can begin to understand in what ways, one may get a glimpse of what might be in store. The purpose of this report is to cast as much light as possible on the distinctiveness of the 18-39 cohort of American Jews.
