Too rarely do Jewish guidance services make their way into day schools because Jewish vocational personnel often distance themselves from organized Jewish life and/or because Jewish educators possess a cool attitude to professional guidance outside their own areas of expertise. However, no Jewish student is immune to the strains, conflicts, and pathologies of the greater Jewish community, and vocational services are therefore crucial to the successful training of the next generation of Jewish adults. The author suggests that career guidance programs be incorporated into Jewish days schools and illustrates that such a model can be effective even in an ultra-orthodox yeshiva. Ultimately, guidance strengthens Jewish loyalties and enhances Jewish personalities and should therefore be included in every day school program.
