No question has drawn greater attention, nor
aroused greater concern, in recent years than has
the simple "Will my grandchildren be Jewish?"

The issue of Jewish continuity drew increased
attention following the Jewish Population Study.
Thousands of people appeared to have no connec-
tion to the Jewish community nor any interest in
developing one.

Recommendations were diverse -- and many of
them led to action: Israel programs for teen-agers,
reorganization of the community education system,
increased funding for campus activities, adult edu-
cation programs and family learning opportunities.

Will all of this activity yield results? Our future
depends on it.

The teens of Project Discovery '93 spent a semester in Israel with funding from the United Jewish Foundaton.
