The Jewish Supplementary School in the Post-Modern Era

By Shoshana Silberman

KTAV Publishing House, Inc., 1998

The author considers the Jewish Supplementary School in the postmodern era, which she describes as a time where no one is seen as having a monopoly on truth. As such, in this era where activating one's Jewish heritage is voluntary, Silberman discusses the need to make Judaism a desirable option in order to appeal to American Jews. Furthermore, the author discusses the necessity of beginning Jewish education during the nursery school years, the need of schools to define their individual goals, and 'family education' as the means of family involvement, among many other topics covered.
