The Dilemma of Jewish Education: To Learn and To Do

By David Ellenson, Isa Aron

American Jewish Congress, 1984

The authors examine the concept of relgious knowledge as related to, coupled with, and detached from the concept of religious practice, beginning with an analysis of a responsum by Rabbi David Hoffman of Berlin. The authors use this case to discuss broader issues facing Jewish educators in the modern period, and issues of Jewish identity in general.
