Psychology and Jewish Identity Education

By Barry Chazan, Perry London

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1990

This essay focuses on the psychology of Jewish identity and its potential role in Jewish education. Two types of psychological theory might have valuable implications for Jewish identity education: the developmental and the social comparison approaches. These theories have not been elaborated in writings on Jewish identity, and they may help us reflect on some practical approaches to Jewish identity education.
