Six leading scholars--representing Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and secular perspectives--formulate their variant models of an ideal Jewish education for the contemporary world. This book addresses the multiple challenges of the open society to Jewish continuity by considering different versions of Jewish education appropriate for our time. It emphasizes the continuity of theory and practice, translating theory into practice as well as articulating theory embodied in practice. The book shows how all religious and ethnic communities might deepen the impact of their educational programs.ContentsPart I. The Vision Project1. Envisioning Jewish education2.

Some of its contents are a revelation, others reflect imagination and still others evince perception, while the balance simply represents a point of view."--Teachers College RecordContributorsIsadore Twersky, Menachem Brinker, Moshe Greenberg, Michael A.
