Communal Aspects of Jewish Education

By Ralph Segalman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1948

This piece explores communal factors in Jewish education. The field of Jewish education, like the American Jewish community, has within it many proponents of differing points of view. These differences mirror the divisions of Jewish religious organizations into three major groups (Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform). Jewish education represents a growing force within American Jewish life, especially as it attracts communal minded personalities in its program, personnel, and its boards. The piece concludes by asserting that improvements in Jewish education throughout the country can be partially stimulated by constructive efforts in which all communities can take part.
