Jewish Day School: Our Children, Our Future

Jewish Day School: Our Children, Our Future | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Making Jewish day school affordable is a holy endeavor that lacks an easy or obvious solution. Keeping Jewish education at its current level, and figuring out ways to make it better is our first priority; making it affordable is a close second. As we go through this uncertain process of making Jewish education affordable, we need to remember that Jewish education plays such a central role in our religion that as God describes his reason to distinguish Avraham, he states, “For I have singled him out, that he may instruct his children and his posterity to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is just and right”

Yeshiva day schools: Give parents a choice

Yeshiva day schools: Give parents a choice | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

This piece, the follow up to my recent discussion of the financial and non-financial costs of yeshiva day schools, proposes what I respectfully submit is a relatively simple and intuitive solution to this fundamental flaw in the yeshiva day school model. Put in place, it would radically alleviate yeshiva day school costs without compromising our children’s Jewish education, and potentially make that education more effective and lasting.

While the Ger Chassidim are certainly worthy of condemnation for this, we are not much better. We are, as a matter of fact, the mirror image of them. They pursue kedusha wrongly, while we do not pursue it all, both of us thereby robbing our respective communities of one of Judaism’s most potent spiritual and emotional elixirs.

The Traditional Lesson Planning Model Has Failed Jewish Educators… Time for a New Model – Jeducation World

The Traditional Lesson Planning Model Has Failed Jewish Educators… Time for a New Model – Jeducation World | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
The lesson planning process I learned five decades ago will sound far too familiar to readers who are teachers or prospective teachers. Some of the language has changed over the years but the approach has remained the same. And it is not working. All evidence points to the fact that this approach has never been a good fit for Jewish educators and is now completely inadequate for Jewish experiential and informal Jewish educators (those working in non-school settings). The model fails in three ways: A) Does not encourage creative thinking; B) Limits what can be taught; C) Does not address needs of experiential educators or educators in informal settings.

MOFET JTEC - Financial Constraints on Intensive Jewish Education: The Interactive Effects of Financial Capacity and Jewish Connections

MOFET JTEC - Financial Constraints on Intensive Jewish Education: The Interactive Effects of Financial Capacity and Jewish Connections | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

This paper examines the independent and interactive effects of financial capacity and Jewish connections on reported constraints in purchasing two intensive forms of Jewish education, day school and overnight summer camp. The analysis is structured around three hypotheses: (1) financial capacity is inversely related to constraints on Jewish education; (2) Jewish connections increase or decrease the level at which financial capacity determines financial constraints on Jewish education; (3) the strength of the inverse relationship between financial capacity and financial constraints on Jewish education varies by the strength of Jewish connections.
