All Systems Go: Masculinity in a Jewish High School

By Marc Baker

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2009

The author, a Jewish educator, asserts that during a time of life that can feel frightening and disconnected, Jewish high school can be a corrective for the bifurcated lives and identities so many Jewish teenagers live. The shabbaton experience, for example, offers a window into the unique power of a Jewish high school education and its capacity to nurture and inspire the Jewish adolescent identities of its students.
