Some Dissonance on the Day School Bandwagon

By Steven M. Brown

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), 2000

The purpose here is to discuss the serious pitfalls inherent in allegiance to the emerging policy of exclusive support for day schools, and to caution against neglect of other forms of gateways into Judaism. The explosive growth of day schools, and the ensuing enthusiastic support of Federations and family foundations may be blinding policy makers to some troubling facts that could bring the whole enterprise to collapse. Here, then, are some dissonant vibrations about the day school bandwagon.
