Do-It-Together Jewish Education

By Saul Kaiserman

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, February 2010

The author explores the dilemmas involved in Jewish education as it relates to decisions about values, beliefs and practices and the options for Jewish education outside traditional settings such as synagogues. He asserts that a thriving Jewish education must perpetuate the existing ways of life while also supporting the future of Judaism through innovation. This requires educators to be experts in syncing modern sensibilities with ancient lessons. The piece concludes by affirming the need for Jewish education to reach out in unique and adaptable ways to diverse Jewish populations and their various needs.
