The Impact of Divorce on Jewish Education

By Sherry H. Blumberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1994

Divorce affects the lives of all students in Jewish education either directly or indirectly and has an impact on the delivery of Jewish education as well. By creating caring environments in our schools that can facilitate leaming and help create a positive Jewish identity, incorporating divorce prevention into curricular materials, changing existing dues and fees structures to reflect the economic losses posed by divorce, and altering educational schedules to accommodate custodial arrangements, Jewish schools can reach out to families affected by divorce and draw them into a caring Jewish community.
