The author describes a phenomenon of "user-generated Jewishness" in which adherents increasingly relate to their faith or other aspects of identity in individualized and innovative terms using technology such as the internet. The challenge for Jewish education rests on the individual's changing attitude towards authority and empowerment. The author suggests action steps Jewish educators may take on their own and collaboratively to respond to the constant changes in the 21st century learning environment.
