Diversity and Informal Jewish Education

By Kerry M. Olitzky

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), June 2007

The author discusses the importance of informal Jewish learning environments such as Jewish camps, youth groups and trips to Israel. Although these forums gained legitimacy in recent years, Olitzky is concerned about the current decline of participation in these programs. He explains that informal Jewish educators and institutions must learn to reach secular Jews of all backgrounds and ideologies. Further, Olitzky challenges formal Jewish educators and institutions to reflect Jewish diversity so that more Jewish communities can be reached and engaged.
