CAMPUS CURRENTS: Something very significant is now going on
in the American colleges and universities throwing new light on Jewish
youth in this country. In one short sentence—the proportion of Jewish
students in the American schools of higher learning is declining.
The decline has been developing since 1967, but no Jewish organi-
zation was seemingly aware of it. Now it became noticeable due to
the American Council on Education. The Council carried out a survey
of the Jewish freshmen—funded by the American Jewish Committee—
to learn how Jewish college freshmen differed from or resembled their
Christian peers. Its inquiry revealed quite a lot of interesting facts
concerning the JeWish freshmen in 1970. But most revealing to me
was the fact that the proportion of Jewish freshmen in colleges, as
well as in universities, has been declining each year for the last three
According to the survey, the percentage of Jewish freshmen who
entered universities in 1967 was 9.9 of all the freshmen of that year.
In 1968, it dropped to 8.0. In 1969, there was a further drop to '1.8.
Similar was the decline in the four-year colleges where Jewish fresh-
men constituted 5.3 in 1967, 4.9 in 1968 and 3.9 in the fall term of 1969.
Considering also the number of Jewish freshmen in two-yeat
colleges the inquiry showed that Jews constituted only 4.2 per cent
among all the freshmen who entered all institutions of higher learning
in the fall of 1969, compared with the higher proportion of 5.0 they
constituted in 1968, and with the even higher percentage of 5.4 in 1967.
A continued drop in the number of Jewish freshmen each year naturally
means also a consequent drop in the proportion of Jews on the
campuses in general.
Jews currently constitute about 3 per cent of the general popula-
tion in the United States. ',However, because of the stronger emphasis
they place on giving their children higher education, the proportion
of the Jewish students was always higher. The unexpectedly revealed
decline in the proportion of Jewish students—their total has usually
been estimated at 350,000—is puzzling the American Jewish Committee
THE GENERATION GAP: Despite the accepted opinion that there
wide gap existing between parents and children over certain
values, more than 97 per cent of the Jewish freshmen expressed warm
feelings for their parents. They said they realize that their parents
are "deeply concerned" about them. About 88 per cent proudly stated
their parents are interested in cultural and intellectual pursuits.
According to the survey, 87 per cent of the fathers of the freshmen
—and more than 92 per cent of the mothers—have received an educa-
tion ranking between graduating from _high school to postgraduate
college degree. Another interesting fact established by the survey is
that more than 98 per cent of Jewish studentg the -universities are
American-born. In the colleges, their percentage is Soniwhat - smaller.
More than 54 per cent of the parents of the inquired fresiinqn were
businessmen, but only 15 per cent of the freshmen indicated. that 'their
major field of study will be business. About 13 per cent chtn
as their probable career. Approximately the same' percelitnge--- Was
noticed among those who said they intend to become lawyers. Eleven_ 7 ,
per cent said they prefer history and political science—The percentage
was lower (10.5) among those who said they intend to make engineer-
ing their occupation. Nine per cent indicated their preference for
psychology, sociology and anthropology.
The Jewish identity sentiments of the young generation is revealed
by the fact that 80 per cent of the freshmen gave the Jewish religion
as their preference to other religions. At the same time, 20 per cent
of the freshmen reared as Jews said they are no longer identified with
the Jewish religion. More than 40 per cent considered their parents
as being "deeply religious."

Berger said that he • had asked
that a number of honor prisoners
be given permission to speak at
synagogues and church -es in

to make the public aware of what
must be done to rehabilitate such
men and the need to accept them
