From The Congregational School to the Learning Congregation: Are We Ready for a Paradigm Shift?

By Isa Aron

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), September 1996

The author of this article, a Professor of Jewish Education at HUC-JIR, Los Angeles, argues that the congregational school of today is built on two educational conceptions: the first from the 1910s and the second originating in the 1950s. She states the current discontent with this system results from the dissonance between these two visions. She then addresses how communities may go about building new paradigms for successful life-long learning.
