(David Boroff, "Jewish Teen-Age Culture"...)

It is significant , too , that the older teen-agers I interviewed believed , unlike the younger ones , that Jewish students tend to do better academically than their gentile counterparts .

The Jewish working_girl almost invariably works in an office - in contradistinction to gentile factory_workers - and , buttressed by a respectable income , she is likely to dress better and live more expansively than the college_student .

What is noteworthy about this large group of teen-agers is that , although their attitudes hardly differentiate them from their gentile counterparts , they actually lead their lives in a vast self_enclosed Jewish cosmos with relatively little contact with the non Jewish world .
