“‘OMG!’ How Generation Y Is Redefining Faith in the iPod Era,” was a poll conducted by REBOOT: A Network for Jewish Innovation. ()

More than 70 percent of today’s young adults have a positive view of their religious identities, though far fewer of them participate actively in formal or institutional expressions of that sentiment, a national survey has found.

The telephone survey—commissioned by Reboot, a New York City-based nonprofit organization that explores questions of Jewish identity—found that 27 percent of the 1,385 18- to 25-year-olds polled said that religion and God played a central part in their lives. Forty-six percent said they were uncertain about the role of religion in their lives, but they said they had positive feelings about their religious identities and leaned toward informal practices of that faith. Twenty-seven percent said God and religion had little role in their lives.
