Jewish Education in Canada

By Jerome Kutnick

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1989

Canadian Jewry has established an impressive array of institutions and organizations to educate its youth. Jewish education receives substantial financial assistance from the government and local federations, and the community has given it broad support. Nevertheless Jewish education is contentious for Canadian Jewry because it deals with issues that expose the ambivalent nature of Canadian Jewry's relationship to Judaism and Jewish culture in a post-traditional society. This chapter will examine the structure and accomplishments of Jewish education in Canada in the context of these issues. In Jewish Population Studies 21 (Jewish Education Worldwide: Cross-Cultural Perspectives), 135-169.
