of Jewish youth who go to college
may be as high as 95 per cent, or
about twice that of the estimated
national average.
The study, conducted during
1968-69, also discloses that 77 per

These were among preliminary

Teen-age campers in the pio-

is on outdoor living, projects,
extended canoe trips and cultural
excursions and activities.

followup to a sampling made
eight years ago of 6,600 high
school sophomores, juniors and
seniors in 40 states and the Dis-
trict of Columbia to determine
the college and career plans of
Jewish youth.

The current study, polling one
()lit of every six from the first
study, showed that 5 per cent more
than the 90 per cent who had ex-
pected to attend college bad
actually gone.
The study was prepared by Dr.
S. Norman Feingold, BBVS na-
tional director; Sol Swendloff, di-
rector of program, planning and
evaluation of the U.S. Bureau of
Labor Statistics; and Dr. Howard
Rosen, director of the Office of
Manpower Research of the U.S.
Department of Labor. It was con-
ducted among youths affiliated
with Jewish organizations and done
in cooperation with Bnai Brith
Among other findings:
Jewish youth, almost without
exception, have gone into the oc-
cupations they had planned for
when in high school. In the original
sampling, the most popular choice
among boys was engineering, fol-
lowed by medicine, business and
law; among girls, the preferred
occupations were education, social
work, fine arts, business and nurs-
About half said they were influ-
enced "very little or not at all" by
their parents in selecting a career.

Some 30 per cent were "con-
siderably or moderately influ-

enced" in their choice of college
by the number of Jewish stu-
dents or Jewish organization on
About 10 per cent said they had
met "discrimination or unpleasant-
ness" while in college because of
their religious beliefs.
Of the 60 per cent of the respon-
dents who were married when
questioned, slightly less than 10
per cent had intermarried. Among
the total of those married, two out
of three said they were members
of a synagogue or temple and
three out of four said they attend-
ed religious services.
In addition:
More than 14 per cent of the
total questioned had continued
some form of Jewish education
beyond high school.
One-third of the total had done
part-time work for a Jewish
agency or institution, primarily as
Hebrew and Sunday school teach-
ers, youth group leaders and camp
About 30 per cent said they
would be willing to go to Israel for
a year or two after they had com-
pleted their educational and occu-
pational training.
