Between Freedom and Responsibility: The Independent Colleges of Jewish Studies

By Gary S. Schiff

KTAV Publishing House, Inc., 1998

This paper attempts to sketch, in broad brushstrokes, the unique characteristics and opportunities, as well as the issues and problems, that have characterized and challenged the five regionally accredited degree-granting institutions of higher Jewish education. They are, Philadelphia's Gratz College, Baltimore Hebrew University, Boston's Hebrew College, Spertus College of Judaica in Chicago, and Cleveland College of Jewish Studies. Furthermore, Schiff delves into the ideological underpinnings of the various institutions, Jewish studies at secular colleges and universities, institutional funding patterns, regional accreditation, and characteristics of the student body at many of the schools, among other topics covered. Finally, the author concludes with an analysis of the problems and prospects of the Colleges today.
