Authenticity in Agenda-based Text Study

By Stephanie Ives

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, February 2011

The author explores issues related to agenda-based text study, such as that in which she engages with American Jewish World Service as part of its service learning / global justice agenda. These forms of text study are not "neutral" or "objective" per se, but no form of text study can completely disconnect from tacit agendas, the author argues. The rabbinic sages of the Talmud may also have pursued scholarship based on agendas, she further contends.
