Jewish Family Life Education and the Orthodox Day School

By Richard J. Levin, Kenneth A. Bruss

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1980

Within the past several years, there has been a dramatic increase in the range of programs and services which share the heading of "Jewish Education." An example is Jewish Family Life Education which in its broadest sense is a multi-faceted learning approach which strengthens and enriches the quality of Jewish family life. It is based on the assumption that the Jewish community's learning needs are ever-changing and that learning is a lifelong process. The focus of this paper is an experiential program implemented by the Department of Jewish Family Life Education of Boston's Jewish Family and Children's Service. The program was designed to create a positive group experience and role model for a class of difficult seventh and eighth grade boys in an Orthodox day school. The objective was to help the class become manageable and cohesive. While it is significant that this program could be implemented in such a setting, it has implications across institutional lines.
