The Functions of Jewish Schooling in America

By Geoffrey E. Bock

Magnes Press (Jerusalem), 1984

This paper will assess the functions of Jewish schooling in terms of the overall process of Jewish identification in American society. The article analyzes data from the NJPS and reaches the conclusion that while schooling is an important aspect in the identification process, therefore the author does not consider it to be the most determining factor. The relative impact of Jewish schooling depends on the forms of identification in question.
