Change in Jewish Education: Problems and Paradoxes

By Michael Zeldin, Isa Aron

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), Spring 1996

In the name of the newest goal, continuity, old institutions are said to be in the need of transformation. Under this banner, a wide range of projects have been initiated, each holding out the promise of change. This paper focuses less on the programmatic content of the different efforts than on the theories of change which underlie them. What do we know about change in Jewish education? What distinguishes change efforts that are successful from those that are less so? If one wanted to be successful in changing an institution, how might one go about it?
