Priorities and Planning for Jewish Education

By Sidney Z. Vincent

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1971

A common mantra heard in Jewish professional circles is that Jewish education fails to achieve its goals. Rather than investing more money in a flagging system, changes must be made in response to new priorities for a new generation. Such changes include movement from educating the young to educating the mature, from focusing on the child to focusing on the family, and from an emphasis on learning to an emphasis on experience. In particular, summer camps and trips to Israel have served as vibrant models of successful Jewish education, modeling the necessary changes that must be made for the next generation.
