Over the last few decades, Jewish communities around the world have developed innovative comprehensive educational systems such as day schools, community centers, winter and summer camps, youth organizations, and adult education programs. The relatively young field of research on Jewish education has endeavored to document, understand and analyze the changes that have and are continuing to take place, yet in order to establish a base of cumulative knowledge on the subject, a systematic approach is needed. The aim of this paper is to try to meet this need by providing a general framework that assesses simultaneously and systematically the various aspects of Jewish education. This will be done by formulating a mapping sentence that encompasses the variety of aspects implied in the broad concept and praxis of Jewish education.
