When the Pew study on the American Jewish community came out at the beginning of the month, it shed light on various generational trends and spawned myriad articles, op-eds and think pieces. Jews of all stripes were suddently trying to find ways to match the results and statistics to the lives they were living.

That is especially true for millennials, the demographic for whom the data seemed to shed the most light. Younger people were less religious, less interested in organized Judaism, and found things like a having a “Jewish” sense of humor to be more indicative of Jewish identity than religious observance, the report concluded. But what do young people really think about Judaism? “The Takeaway,” a radio show produced by Public Radio International and WNYC, had the good sense to ask a few.

Tablet’s Adam Chandler joined writer Sarah Seltzer and Michael Yashinsky to talk Jewish life, therapists, and, of course, bacon.
