Identity and Ambivalance: A Strategy for Teacher Education in Jewish Studies

By Brenda Bacon

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), October 1997

The author, head of the Education Division at the Seminary of Judaic Studies in Jerusalem, presents the Jewish educational crisis that had led up to the Shenhar Commission. As a result of the guidelines set in the conclusions of the Shenhar Commission, the author led a case-writing workshop in which Israeli teachers could hear the stories of American educators. This kind of sharing and cooperation could help Israeli educators teach Jewish tradition in a pluralistic manner.
