Some Principles of Jewish Education

By Jacob S. Golub

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1937

In order that they may be equipped to appreciate the development of Palestine, our children must be prepared in those basic elements of our tradition that Jewish life in Palestine is postulated. And, of course, application must be made of all of the problems facing world Jewry to conditions in the United States, because ultimately our education is for the purpose of enabling children to live in the United States. Our future in America, however, is bound up with the entire future of the Jewish people, and only through sharing the life and fortunes of the Jewish people as refracted through Palestine will American Jewish life take on the character which it needs for its spiritual and mental health.
