This study builds on a national report published by Reboot in 2005, called "OMG! How Generation Y is Redefining Faith in the iPod Era." OMG! looked at religious identity, practice and civic engagement among 18-25 year-old Catholics, Protestants, Muslims and Jews, as well as among African Americans, Latino Americans and Asian Americans. OMG! reported that the Jewish cohort was very much a symbol of their generation. The vast majority of them fell under a category called the "Undecided;" they were largely positive about their Jewish identities but were unsure as to how their religious identities played out in their daily lives. This second study was commissioned to delve more deeply and to listen more carefully to this Jewish cohort, not with the idea of looking for absolute answers but rather to have a chance to glimpse the seeds of the future.<br /> <a class="doclink" href="index.php?opt ...

12Tribe Films Foundation ("12Tribe Films") is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting creative projects about the Jewish people and the land of Israel that connect, entertain, and inspire. As the name of the organization suggests, our creative projects address Jewish issues, with a greater focus on the Jewish values that connect us as a whole. While the projects of 12Tribe Films address religious, political, sociological, and current events effecting Israel and the Jewish people, our goal is to be an informative and educational resource that focuses on the underlying Jewish values and human experiences beneath the issues.<br /><br />We specialize in providing movies and cultural programs that show a side of the Jewish and Israeli narrative that receives little attention in the public discourse today. Whether you're with an organization, synagogue, temple, camp, or community ...
