Who are today's Jewish college students? How do they compare to those of a decade or two ago? How do they about Judaism and the Jewish people? How do they express their attitudes in terms of participation in Jewish activities in campus? What are their views on marriage and the family? Do they date non-Jews? Do they accept or reject intermarriage as a personal future option? The present study attempts to answer these and related questions.
