Over the past two decades, American youth, particularly those of Jewish background have experienced dramatic changes in the dynamics of their social relationships. This study recognizes these changes and suggests that programs be implemented that effectively address the needs of growing youth within the Jewish community. The article explains that during the 1960s and 1970s youth were highly susceptible to change and explains how this point in time serves as the prime insertion point for implementing enriching programs for Jewish youth.
