Redesigning Jewish Education in the Real World: A Case Study in Bridging Principles and Practice

By Jeffrey Schein, Jonathan Woocher

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), 2010

During the 2008-09 academic year, Siegal College and the JECC of Cleveland collaborated with JESNA's Lippman Kanfer Institute on a series of seminars for Cleveland-area educators and congregational leaders that was built around the "design principles for 21st century Jewish education" articulated by the Institute in its Working Paper, Redesigning Jewish Education for the 21st Century. The goal of the seminar was to see whether and how these design principles -- treating the learner as the focal point and an active agent in the educational process, infusing education with rich peer-to-peer and educator-student relationships, and making Jewish education "life-centered" -- could be used by educators as practical guides and stimuli for designing and implementing educational activities in their institutions, especially synagogues.
