Abstract:
This study examines the Jewish identity of teenagers growing up as both British and Jewish. While these young people all have an 'ethnic' identity they are unmarked by colour and are able to 'pass' if they so wish. Bhabha (2004) suggests that in members of ethnic communities have a 'hybrid' identity, one where elements from each culture continually interact to produce a new cultural form - an amalgam. However, if Individuals do not look different, are not economically or socially oppressed; if this does not occur within a situation of colonialism and resistance', does this still hold true? Various theories of 'Identity' are examined together with substantive studies of the British-Jewish community.
