Education's Dilemma: Personal Involvement

By Zac Kaye

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), World Zionist Organization (WZO), 1984

The author argues that Jewish parents in the Sydney Jewish community will send their children to a Jewish day school, but will not necessarily have this Jewishness reinforced at home. As a result, the Jewish day school has to assess how it can create a Jewish ambience that reaches beyond Jewish education. In order to guarantee Jewish survival, the author urges Jewish parents to be more Jewishly aware and involved in the educational process, to become more fully a Jewish person, and to be proud to be able to pass on Jewish traditions.
