Synagogue Schools and Congregational Agendas

By Saul Kaiserman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2007

The author argues that a synagogueĆ¢??s educational program may be an ideal context for negotiations between its institutional ideology and the diverse identities of its constituency. Its supplementary school should provide opportunities for personal and communal self-exploration. The author concludes that education is a key vehicle by which the synagogue can become a change agent in the world.
