Yeshiva College Honors Student Zev Eleff Publishes Book on History of NCSY

In a world where instant access to entertainment through iPods, Youtube and Facebook encourages a superficial connectivity among younger generations, Zev Eleff probes the deeper questions of religion and values. A student in the Jay and Jeanie Schottenstein Honors Program at Yeshiva College, Eleff recently completed “Living from Convention to Convention: A History of the NCSY, 1954-1980” (Ktav Publishing House), a book that illuminates how past educators have engaged disaffected youth in meaningful dialogue and exploration through NCSY and the informal Jewish education movement in North America.
