A Time for Joy: The Open Classroom and the Jewish School

By Cherie Koller

Response, Winter 1972

The author discusses the need for radical structural reform of the traditional Hebrew and Sunday School classroom, as modern Jewish education has become, for far too many students, an intensely negative experience. In an effort to replicate the open intellectual space of the Jewish community, the teacher proposes an open classroom that allows the students to learn outside of the usual structure.
