CHAI - Learning for Jewish Life

By Jan Katzew

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), Summer 2002

Effecting change on a national level in a decentralized educational system represents a major challenge. Both practical constraints and commitment to the ideal of local control narrow the options for national bodies such as the religious movements. The author introduces the new curriculum under development by the Reform Movement. He provides insight into the Jewish and educational philosophies that undergird the design of this national curriculum and identifies its key components. The article will be helpful for groups deliberating on setting policy on a national level, as well as for leadership of synagogues and congregational schools seeking to implement these initiatives.
