Jewish Peoplehood Education: Framing the Field

By Varda Rafaeli, Shlomi Ravid

Center for Jewish Peoplehood Education, 2011

The Global Task Force on Peoplehood Education was launched to address the educational challenge of nurturing in the hearts and minds of young Jews a sense of belonging to the Jewish People and active commitment to the Jewish collective. The Task Force included senior educators from throughout the Jewish world with expertise in formal, informal, adult and community education. This report summarizes the insights, issues and recommendations that emerged from the Task Force deliberations and the process of developing Peoplehood educational models undertaken by the Task Force members. In general terms, Peoplehood education was framed as the educational intervention required to establish a Jewish collective consciousness coupled with an active commitment to the Jewish collective enterprise. Three core educational goals were delineated: 1. Engagement with the Jewish People. 2. Development of a Peoplehood consciousness. 3. Nurturing an action-oriented commitment to the Jewish collective.
