Creativity goes hand-in-hand with openness to what and who is around us, as well as with welcoming and understanding diversity.

Terry Doherty's curator insight, March 8, 2015 7:45 PM

Another way of showing how reading widely does more than just "broaden your world."


"When you dive into a second culture, two interesting things happen. First, it increases your overall openness to new experiences ... As second thing that happens is that you being to recognize that everything in the world can be viewed in many different ways."

American Jews in Text and Context: Jacob Behrman and the Rise of a Publishing Dynasty

American Jews in Text and Context: Jacob Behrman and the Rise of a Publishing Dynasty | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
This article explores the career of Jacob Behrman (1921–2012) and the growth of Behrman House from a small Jewish bookseller to the leading publisher of Jewish religious school textbooks. Behrman’s success owed in part to his ability to appeal to the vast center, to gauge correctly his consumers’ needs and reflect their outlook and values, to eschew partisanship and play down ideological differences, and to swim with the tide. In addition, I make the case that Behrman House elevated the field of Jewish education by raising the quality of Jewish textbooks, and that through its ascendency played a role in redefining the goals of Jewish education and its undergirding ideological thrust. Behrman was not driven by a single model of Jewish education or a monolithic vision for the Jewish community, but rather, by business exigencies and a connection to Jewish peoplehood and culture.
