The Confused State of Jewish Education

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), September 1994

This editorial of AVAR ve'ATID introduces the subject of Jewish education and its problems on two fronts: Jewish-Zionist education and Jewish education in the Diaspora. Jewish-Zionist programs, such as the "Israel Experience" work under the faulty assumption that being present in Israel is enough to build a Jewish-Zionist identity, and similarly, non-Orthodox education in the Diaspora lacks an ideology that can build a strong and committed Jewish identity. The editor would like to see both define what their ideology is and toward what goal they would like to educate, in order that they be able to assure Jewish continuity.

Topic: Continuity, Diaspora, Jewish Identification, Israel Attachment, Israel Experience, Education, Ideology, Jewish Continuity, Zionism
