Psychological Problems in Jewish Education

By Kurt Lewin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1947

Jewish education is not merely facing the problem of how children can gain knowledge of certain cultural values but how to learn to live as a Jew in America. This piece discusses psychological problems related to the values, which Jewish education might offer in order to address these issues. The piece asserts that to be effective, any Jewish education program has to consider the sociological and the psychological position of the Jewish child.
