On Tuesday night, the Forward’s Opinion Editor Laura E. Adkins spoke with Forward columnist Alex Zeldin, Jewish Currents editor Arielle Angel, and 18Doors Chicago director Tani Prell on Clubhouse about what this new study teaches us about Jews aged 18-30, and the many complexities that it leaves out.
