Educating for Global Citizenship

By Jennifer Glaser

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, February 2011

While Jewish education is usually conceived in particularist terms, the author contends that Jewish education must also strive to foster a sense of responsibility and belonging regarding the wider human community. She offers three dimensions of global citizenship which she believes Jewish education ought to include: interdependence; social imagination and a vision of good; and responsible participation.
