What We Know About Adult Jewish Education

By Lisa D. Grant, Diane Tickton Schuster

A.R.E. Press, January 2008

Adult Jewish learning is valued as a normative Jewish behavior and has increased at a dramatic rate throughout the Jewish community since the 1980s. The authors review current research about the learners, pedagogy, content, and impact of adult Jewish learning programs and raise questions about the future of Jewish adult education: what are the purposes and goals of adult Jewish learning, who are populations that should be served, and what impact will Jewish learning have on the Jewish community?
