Day Schools or Nothing?

By Andrew Silow-Carroll

eJewish Philanthropy, Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), May 21, 2010

The author calls for a new model for thinking about Jewish education, one which does not pit day schools against supplementary schools. This more holistic approach to Jewish education, which regards Jewish education as a continuum that contains a variety of viable alternatives -- including summer camps, Israel trips, youth groups, and family programming -- will ensure that we do not create a sort of artificial class system, with all the tensions and inequities that implies.
