Growing Jewish Education in Challenging Times: A Roundtable on Critical Challenges and Opportunities

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

What can we do to make Jewish education more attractive, accessible and affordable, even under current conditions of economic pressure on both "providers" and "consumers"? How do the challenges of expanding educational participation play out today in specific arenas - day school, "complementary" education, camp, Israel education - and for specific critical populations - families with young children, teens, young adults, etc.? What new approaches are being tried and where are there signs of success? What has yet to be tried, but ought to be? Leaders from a wide range of settings and representing a variety of perspectives were invited to address these questions in a Roundtable series of essays that appeared over several weeks on eJewishPhilanthropy and on the JESNA website. We've now gathered their analyses and proposals together in this publication, along with the comments of readers to several of the essays who add their own opinions to the mix. We encourage you to use this publication to stimulate further discussion on the critical issues the essays address.
