In Their Own Words: Young Jewish Adults in Toronto

This presentation will highlight key findings from my interviews and focus groups with a sample of Toronto's young Jewish adult (YJA) community (25 to 35 years of age). I will focus on topics such as: how YJAs define Jewish identity, the relationship between YJAs and the Toronto Jewish community, dating and relationships and family. This presentation will explore the ways in which YJAs think about and express their Jewish identity in ways and forms that take place outside of traditional spaces (i.e. synagogues, community centres) and offer a starting point for a discussion about ways in which this demographic engages with their Jewishness.
